Ceronav organized between 1-3 April 2015 the third pilot course in the framework of the LNG Masterplan project, LNG as cargo. The course took place at the Information and Training Info Danube Center Galati with 19 trainees, all employees of Navrom Galati, APDM Galati (beneficiaries in the project) and CERONAV Galati.
The course comprised the following modules: legislation, regulations related to LNG transport, knowledge about LNG, safety in LNG operation, maintenance and control of the LNG installations, cargo tanks and cargo containment, emergency procedures, LCHS simulator. The course ended with a final test and an evaluation of the course.
The trainees appreciated the content of the course, the hand-outs and the manner of delivery, most of them admitting that they had only general or little knowledge about LNG prior to this course. At the same time they were very impressed with the risks involving LNG and the environmental impact if safety rules are not obeyed.
The practical part of this course was done in the form of images captured from the LCHS simulator and presented on a video projector. Despite the fact that there are few methods to develop practical skills with regard to LNG as cargo, judging from the questionnaires of satisfaction the course was a real success.
