NYK's certified training program "LNG Carrier Training Standard Course" is offered at the NYK Maritime Training Center in Shin-Sugita, where practical training using simulators is offered to small groups of approximately ten employees at a time.
Since 1983, when NYK began operating LNG carriers, the NYK Maritime Training Center has systematically developed various training programs in order to encourage and maintain safe operations. Programs include LNG Onboard Training, LNG Carrier Training Advanced Courses, LNG Steam Turbine Training, 6,600 Volt high voltage generating Plant Training. As a result of the extensive training provided through these programs, NYK's LNG carriers have had over 2,600 trouble-free voyages over the past 20 years.
In response to the recent increase in LNG shipping volume, NYK intends to aggressively expand its LNG carrier operations. The company is currently scheduled to increase the number of NYK-owned carriers from 37 to 67 by 2010. NYK's newly accredited training program will help the company ensure a stable supply of LNG and the safe operation of LNG carriers worldwide.
