A new simulation complex for tanker personnel training built by Transas has been opened by IMO Secretary General Koji Sekimizu at the Makarov Training Centre, part of the Admiral Makarov State University of Maritime and Inland Shipping.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Makarov will use the new centre to expand its training portfolio by offering individual and crew training for tanker personnel, both cadets and seafarers, in compliance with STCW convention chapter V and IMO model courses.

The simulator-based courses include tanker systems familiarisation; general arrangement of the tanker and its systems; maintenance of the tanker systems on management level; monitoring systems parameters; and control of the monitoring, alarm and recording systems.

A Transas liquid cargo handling simulator LCHS 5000 TechSim has also been installed, intended to train and certify crew members of crude oil tankers, gas and product carriers and terminals, as well as other staff responsible for safe cargo handling and the operation of auxiliary equipment.

Makarov instructors have already passed the Transas operational training course, and are now ready to commence training at the centre.{/mprestriction}
