GTT Training, a subsidiary of French engineering company GTT, dedicated to the training of maritime professionals involved with the use of LNG as a cargo and marine fuel on Monday (6, July) said it has entered into a training partnership with Wavelink Maritime Institute (WMI) of Singapore.
The partnership will facilitate the delivery of GTT Training’s LNG industry related courses at WMI’s training facility in Jurong, Singapore, expanding both WMI’s portfolio of courses offered to the maritime industry and GTT Training’s regional presence in South East Asia, it said.
The partnership agreement includes the installation of GTT Training’s Liquid Gas Handling Simulator ‘G-SIM’ at the Wavelink Maritime Simulation Centre and the co-sharing of expertise.
This will facilitate the full range of LNG handling and operations courses for the personnel involved with LNG Carriers, Terminals and LNG-fuelled vessels to be provided at WMI’s facility.
“We are very pleased to be able to announce this partnership with WMI as it will combine the resources and expertise of two leading institutions, enabling us to better assist the industry in providing the trained personnel they require to meet the increasing demand on vessels that carry and use LNG in the region,” said Ray Gillett, Director and General Manager of GTT Training.
