March, 2014 – Sweden. Transas Marine has launched its new liquid cargo handling simulator LCHS 5000 TechSim LNG which is the first in the market to boast ship-to-ship transfer functionality. The new Transas LCHS 5000 TechSim product line includes simulators for LNG tanker, LNG terminal and LPG carrier.
Ship-to-ship transfer is a complex operation which requires adequate training to minimise the risks of damage to personnel, environment and assets. Transas LCHS 5000 allows for a complete resource management training involving crews of both mother and daughter vessels.
The new simulator will enable trainers to provide highly realistic, in-depth training using the high-end simulation technology ingerent within LCHS 5000 TechSim. This includes vessel team management exercises as well as interaction with terminal operations staff.
The LNG vessel and LNG terminal simulator models were developed in a close collaboration with the Sczecin Maritime Academy, Poland. Simulated models have been designed to reflect real installations which are currently under-construction at the Swinoujscie LNG terminal in Poland.
To further complement the liquid gas vessel model range, an LPG vessel model was developed by Transas and validated by LPG operators.
The new developments will be showcased during Gastech exhibition at the Transas stand J210. The exhibition takes place in Gyonggi, Republic of Korea during March, 24-27.
