Titan LNG signs up for LNG bunkering safety training

12 Jun 2018

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering firm Titan LNG has entered into a long-term crew safety training contract with LNG safety specialist Transafe in preparation of its first LNG ship-to-ship bunkering operations from the FlexFueler by the end of this year.

“Safety is paramount to everything we do here at Titan LNG,” says Ronald van Selm, COO of Titan LNG.

“In order to engrain operational safety in all our nautical crew, we have selected Transafe as our partner for this extensive LNG bunkering safety-training programme.

“Transafe will contribute to set the industry safety standard for our bunkering pontoons and our other planned LNG bunker barges.”

Cristiaan Heuvelman, Managing Director of Transafe, notes Titan LNG’s training package includes simulations in the brand-new Simwave facility and practical training at the Falck LNG training centre in Rotterdam.

“LNG as a marine fuel is growing fast. We are training more vessel crews on how to work safely with LNG as a fuel,” he says.

“Titan LNG is the first bunker supplier to commit to this high quality programme, showcasing their dedication to safety."

AMS, operator and crew provider of the FlexFueler, is positive of the development.

“With this LNG specific programme we will set the standard in safe LNG bunkering in the ARA region,” says Igor Jansen, director of AMS.

“All crew members will receive extensive training to comply with the International Association of Ports and Harbors regulations.”
