Alpha Process Controls has formed a new relationship with Stream Marine Training (SMT) to support the delivery of a new vessel fuel handling training program.
The County Durham, UK-based manufacturer will demonstrate its LNG breakaway coupling technology to delegates as part of a new pilot program to provide basic training for the use of fuels covered within the IGF Code – the international code of safety for ships using gases and other low-flashpoint fuels.
The two-day program is delivered at SMT’s facility at Glasgow Airport and has been approved by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA). It has been designed to support the drive for safety standards and competency in the offshore LNG industry.
Delegates will take part in a series of theory and practical sessions to cover areas such as properties of fuels included in the IGF Code, cryogenic testing, managing hazards, safety equipment and devices and shipboard procedures and measures.
In keeping with other LNG-related training programs offered by SMT, where the training provider has established a network of partners from the LNG industry that can supplement its training with professional, field-based experience, the company has engaged with Alpha Process Controls to assist with the delivery of this program.
