KVH Videotel launches LNG bunkering course

E-training provider KVH Videotel has launched an LNG bunkering course.

With the rise in LNG bunkering KVH Videotel has developed a training course for vessel crew and port or terminal staff for safe LNG bunkering based around guidelines from the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF).

The training course entitled “LNG Bunkering – Respond Level Training Course” covers, composition and usage of LNG and potential bunkering methods, hazards and consequences for the individual and ship, relevant procedures for fighting LNG fires, and emergency procedures for shipping companies and port authorities.

 “This training course is invaluable to all crew and port or terminal staff involved with LNG bunkering,” said Mark Woodhead, KVH senior vice president, EMEA.

“Using interactive computer-based training, the five modules take the user through the hazards associated with LNG. The 45-minute programme is packed with photographs, video clips, animations, and interactive exercises to keep the user engaged.”

KVH Industries is exhibiting at Marintec China 2017 Hall N3 stand K19.
