BASIC TRAINING FOR LIQUEFIED GAS TANKER CARGO OPERATIONS — IMO MODEL COURSE 1.04
|D O W N L O A D|
This is the official IMO Model Course No. 1.04 dealing with the basic training for the cargo operations carried out on board modern liquefied gas tankers. As this is the case with all other model courses, it is prepared in accordance with the STCW convention to meet the requirements of the A-V/1-2-1. First of all, the trainees will be given general information on the liquid gas tankers, their construction and general arrangement.
Then, they will proceed to the cargo operations, covering the onboard piping systems and associated valves, equipment used for the cargo handling, loading and unloading of the cargo as well as care during the transit, ESD, cleaning and purging of the cargo tanks etc. Since a good knowledge of the properties of the gases in definitely required for their safe handling, there is a separate chapter in the course addressing their characteristics and physical properties together with the temperature, pressure, generation of the electrostatic charge and chemical symbols.
Note that all above is only one of the parts included in this course. The publication will be extremely useful for all crew members of the tankers and particularly those directly involved in planning and performing the shipboard cargo operations.
