Wärtsilä Voyage has delivered and installed customised LNGPac bunkering and liquid cargo handling simulators at the Mumbai training centre of Hong Kong-based Anglo-Eastern Univan Group.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} This is a new product for the marine market, reflecting the increasing adoption by fleet owners of LNG fuel, and the consequential need to ensure that crews are sufficiently trained in operating LNG-fuelled vessels. The order was placed in June 2020 and the project was completed in October.

This Wärtsilä Voyage simulator solution is based on the company’s gas valve unit and LNGPac fuel storage, supply and control system technologies, and includes all auxiliary systems needed in connection with the LNG fuel supply. The system has been tailored to meet the specific requirements of Anglo-Eastern. It complies with the international Standards of Training Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) for training seafarers on gas-fuelled ships, in line with the standards demanded by the IGF Code.

“Having worked with Wärtsilä Voyage for some 25 years, we know and trust their technology completely. We were the first private ship management company to install Wärtsilä’s ship handling simulators, and we are again pioneering comprehensive simulation training in LNG bunkering and cargo handling operations. We consider this to be an extremely important step in ensuring the safe and efficient running of our LNG-fuelled vessels,” commented Capt. Pradeep Chawla, managing director of QHSE and training at Anglo-Eastern.

“Crew training has to keep pace with the marine industry’s transition to new and cleaner fuels. LNG is already well established as a marine fuel, so our development of this simulation solution meets the industry’s need in a timely fashion. It covers the entire LNG fuel system from bunkering to operating LNG dual-fuel engines, and prepares ship crews to handle all related systems safely and correctly,” said Ashok Sharma, sales, Wärtsilä Voyage Hong Kong.

The entire Wärtsilä scope includes a full mission liquid cargo handling simulator that replicates a real ship system, an LNG bunkering and fuel gas supply simulator, and a full mission engine room simulator. {/mprestriction}
