GTT nets crew training contract for US LNG bunker barge

The French LNG containment specialist, GTT said that its two units won a contract for the development and implementation of a training program for the 2,200 m3 LNG bunker barge currently under construction at Conrad Industries Shipyard in Orange, TX.

The contract is following the order received by GTT North America from Conrad Industries in February last year.

The barge, claimed to be the first dedicated LNG bunker barge for the marine market in North America, will feature one tank equipped with Mark III Flex cargo containment technology, from GTT.

GTT said that the newest contract was executed with the barge’s owner TOTE on April 6th, to initiate the program for training of the tug and LNG barge crew, which will ultimately be subject to U.S. Coast Guard approval.

At present, there are no LNG specific competency and training standards for LNG barges that can serve as the basis to establish crew credentials and qualifications by the Flag authorities,” GTT said in the statement.

GTT North America will collaborate with its sister company, GTT Training, STAR Center, an LNG training center located near Miami, FL, and TOTE to fully develop the training program and obtain the necessary approval from U.S.C.G., the company added.
