The Coast Guard’s Liquefied Gas Carrier National Center of Expertise (LGC NCOE) partnered with Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville on providing training for future LNG-fueled vessels inspectors. 

The training was performed with support from the Coast Guard’s Marine Safety Center, according to the US Coast Guard statement.

The team provided Coast Guard marine inspectors with an understanding of LNG fueled engines, bunkering evolutions, risk analysis, membrane containment systems, type C tanks, vessel operations, plan review, and firefighting techniques.

Those who attended the course will use this training to inspect LNG fueled vessels being constructed and/or operated in ports around the country.

LNG fueled vessels by Harvey Gulf International Marine, Tote Maritime, and Crowley Maritime, are already operating on the Gulf Coast and in the Caribbean region, and two additional vessels are under construction by Pasha for operation on West Coast by the end of 2022.
