GasLog signs an agreement with Siport21 to train their crew

The shipping company, GasLog, has signed an annual contract to train their LNG carrier captains and officers in Siport21 Ship Simulation Centre. By this means, GasLog continues to focus on the safety of their crew, trusting the methodology applied by the Spanish company.

This agreement includes the development of real-time ship manoeuvring simulation training programmes in which the attendees will improve their knowledge about LNG Terminals Bahia Blanca and Escobar (Argentina). After this training, attendees will have raised their knowledge of the most complicated navigation areas and, therefore, the safety of the manoeuvres, contributing to facilitate the communication and cooperation between Pilots and bridge staff.

Moreover, specific models of Gaslog vessels will be used in these training programmes. They will comprise transit of the access channels and manoeuvring areas to FSRU (Floating Storage Regasification Unit) and FLNG (Floating Liquefaction Unit), moored at Escobar and Bahia Blanca, respectively. On the other hand, attendees will carry out emergency manoeuvres in order to improve their reactions to unforeseen sudden events.

GasLog has been working with Siport21 since 2013, so that more than 120 Captains and Officers of their fleet have had a positive experience resulting from previous training in this Simulation Centre. This is the main reason for both companies to sign this long-term agreement.


Pioneer in the installation and implementation of numerical ship manoeuvring models and ship manoeuvring simulators in a private company in Spain. Since 1999, Siport21 has developed more than 1.000 technical studies spread out over almost all the Spanish coast and they have worked in 48 other countries. Also, the company has trained more than 1.600 seafarers of 50 international shipping companies in their Simulation Centre.
