Maneuvering Trails and Shiphandling Training


Maneuvering Trails and Shiphandling Training

Maneuvering trials and Shiphandling training for Guayanilla (Puerto Rico) pilots and tug masters were conducted at MarineSafety International's Newport Simulator Center last year. The port of Guayanilla was modeled, including a new LNG terminal to accommodate large, deep draft ships entering the port for the first time.

The objectives of the trials were to give the mariners an opportunity to gain experience handling large LNG ships in their restricted harbor. Docking operations were conducted as well at the new LNG facility. Safety margins were assessed under challenging wind conditions and with different tug configurations. The adequacy of current aids to navigation were evaluated and discussions held to determine appropriate maneuvers that would minimize the risk of accidents in the event of critical equipment failures.
The maneuvering trials were attended among others by captains of a LNG tanker, tugs and Guayanilla pilots. The chief advisor for the LNG terminal project, called the simulation "one of the most rewarding experiences I've had in this business" and hoped the course would set a new standard of preparation for planning new LNG ports.
