LNG-AS-FUEL TRAINING COURSES ARE STCW APPROVED

Monday, October 7, 2019 

Glasgow, UK-based Stream Marine Training (SMT) says it has now delivered training in the use of LNG as fuel to 15 companies, and crews of 20 different nationalities, including the first LNG-fuelled cruise ship.

The company says it was one of the first training providers in the world and the first in the UK, to provide STCW approved courses to teach seafarers how to use LNG as a fuel. After developing its first course three years ago, SMT says it has capitalised on the increasing popularity of LNG as a fuel to reduce sulphur emissions.

“SMT had the foresight to develop LNG training well ahead of the rest of the industry even before the STCW standard was ratified, as we knew that it would be an important fuel in the run up to the Sulphur Cap. Our experts have developed an excellent course which dispels all the myths associated with the use of this fuel and delegates get to see the storage, bunkering and transfer of the fuel at first hand. We have also customised LNG courses for specific sectors of the industry that have particular requirements including our work with the Society of Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) to produce information booklets on all aspects of LNG use,” said Martin White, CEO ofSMT.

“Delegates can either come to our offices in Glasgow or if there is sufficient demand from a particular client, we can travel to a specific location to carry out the training,” said Tony in’t Hout, Director of Marine and Technical business. "Our customised courses are tailored to cover particular aspects of the sector that our delegates work in so they are aware of how to safely implement LNG as a fuel.”
