The technology group Wärtsilä is launching its new LNG bunkering and supply system simulator. The simulator will promote greater safety onboard LNG fuelled vessels by improving the level of training for operators of LNG systems. The design is based on the well-proven Wärtsilä LNGPac and Gas Valve Unit (GVU) technologies, and includes all auxiliary systems used in connection with the fuel supply. The design is also in accordance with the STCW requirements for training seafarers onboard gas fuelled ships to standards demanded by the IGF Code – the international code of safety.

The official launch of the Wärtsilä LNG bunkering and supply system simulator took place at the Global LNG Bunkering Summit 2020 conference, held in Amsterdam from during 28-30 January.

The scope of simulation includes all operations related to the use of LNG fuel, from bunkering to gas fuel supply and engine operations, as well as troubleshooting. It provides realistic representation of the user interface for remote and local operating posts, as well as animated 3D visualisation to facilitate situational awareness training. A ready prepared set of scenarios for tutorials and assessments is available as an additional option.

As the move towards LNG fuel gathers pace in the marine industry, it is essential that crews are thoroughly and expertly trained on handling the related systems. This new simulator is designed to raise training levels on LNG bunkering and supply systems, and will therefore also raise onboard safety levels,” says Sergey Tarasov, solutions manager, Wärtsilä Voyage Solutions.

The Wärtsilä LNG bunkering and fuel supply system simulator is available as a one-off purchase, or on an annual subscription basis. It is part of the successful TechSim 5000 product line, which includes various engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators that have been installed in training centres around the world. The LNGPac simulator enables a number of different configurations tailored to the customer’s needs.

Installations have been carried out at maritime academies and consulting facilities in Italy, Malaysia and Finland. The simulator can also be utilised for in-house training by ship owners and ship management companies.
