This course is intended to provide training in LNG, LPG and Condensate (Oil) loading operations for the following roles:

  • Individuals who will be filling the position of terminal representative on loading tankers
  • Onboard seafarers, to provide an understanding of the shore side operations of loading
  • Port side workers, to provide an understanding of tanker operations

Loadmaster Simulator

The course utilises a Kongsberg Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator designed to show the full extent of operations undertaken on board ship during the load process. The cargo simulator has the ability to utilise different vessel models, including a Membrane LNG Tanker, a semi-refrigerated LPG Tanker and a Crude Oil Tanker.  Interaction with shore representatives is incorporated to ensure that the system functions as would be expected in a real-world situation. The Kongsberg Simulator is approved by Det Norske Veritas as meeting the compliance requirements of Standard for Certification No. 2.14 (January 2011).
