Liquid Cargo Operations Simulator
Liquid Cargo Operations Simulator provides very realistic real time simulation of handling of potentially hazardous bulk liquids from shore to ship and ship to shore. The whole simulation uses real LPG (liquefied petroleum gas). The cargo handling operations are carried out in two real tanks installed in the laboratory. One of them represents pressurized or semi-pressurized ship’s tank and the other pressurized terminal storage tank on land. The cargo handling is controlled from a central console fitted with different controls, reading devices and alarms. Simulator exercises are conducted in real-time and future officers or chief mates are put through the critical phases of all operations carried out to learn all the problems they may face while loading or discharging LPG.
