Transafe and Titan LNG signed a long-term crew safety training contract in preparation of Titan’s first LNG ship-to-ship bunkering operations.

Titan LNG’s FlexFueler, Europe’s first LNG bunkering pontoon, will be operational by the end of this year, the company said in a statement.

Ronald van Selm, COO of Titan LNG commented, “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.”

Cristiaan Heuvelman, managing director of Transafe added that with the growth of LNG as a marine fuel the demand for crew training has also risen.

The training includes simulations in the brand-new Simwave facility and practical training at the Falck LNG training center in Rotterdam.

Igor Jansen, director of AMS, the FlexFueler operator and crew provider, added that all crew members of the FlexFueler will receive extensive training to comply with the International Association of Ports and Harbors regulations.
