GTT Training obtains DNV-GL Approval for Simulation Software

GTT Training, a subsidiary of Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT), has obtained approval from DNV-GL for its new simulation software called “G-Sim.” This Maritime System Simulation in enables training for liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo vessels and ships that use LNG as fuel.

The software simulates LNG fuel tanks, the fuel gas handling management system, and relevant systems with the ability to simulate any action that could be taken onboard a real vessel, such as: management of the LNG fuel tanks; bunkering from different types of suppliers; management of gas fuel to onboard equipment using compressors and fuel pumps;  and the capabilities to change the type of LNG fuel tank and the composition of the LNG to be bunkered.

Ray Gillett, General Manager of GTT Training Ltd., said, “This new simulator is the first of its kind for LNG as fuel applications. It answers the expectations of training providers and ship-owners desiring to train their teams to the use of LNG as a marine fuel.”
