NYK gets DNV OK for online LNG cargo simulator

A unit of Japanese shipping giant NYK has secured approval by classification society DNV for an online cargo handling simulator for LNG carriers.

NYK Shipmanagement also won the same approval for oil tankers.

The simulator provides training for seafarers boarding LNG carriers and oil tankers for the first time, according to NYK.

“The DNV certification confirms that the training content follows the guidelines provided in the IMO model courses,” NYK said in a statement.

Before this, seafarers traveled to the NYK’s training center in Singapore for simulator training.

However, the cloud-based cargo handling simulator now makes training in an online environment possible.

NYK Shipmanagement introduced online ship handling training in September 2020, and afterward added online cargo handling training for LPG carriers and car carriers.

The company is currently working to utilize all resources to introduce online and e-learning options to all types of training.

“The NYK Group will continue its efforts to train seafarers even during the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure the continuing necessary transport of food, supplies, and energy resources,” it said.
