May 9, 2014Big day for Teekay LNG! A new, state-of-the-art navigation and cargo operations simulator training centre was opened in our global gas operations headquarters, Teekay Glasgow. The new simulator centre will see hundreds of Teekay seafarers a year come to Glasgow to attend intensive courses in ship handling; navigation; bridge teamwork; ship-to-ship interactions; cargo operations, heavy traffic situations, and harsh weather conditions. The simulator training centre is a fundamental move for Teekay LNG. “We are just now entering the golden age of gas… and ensuring we have an ongoing supply of highly trained seafarers is critical to that success” said David Glendinning, President, Teekay Gas Services. Learn more about the new training centre in the official release, or take a brief tour of the centre in this video. Teekay is the world’s second largest independent owner of liquid natural gas (LNG) vessels. Our fleet of 34 vessels, each of which can carry roughly one million metric tonnes of cargo annually, can transport LNG equivalent to about 30% of the UK’s annual energy requirements.
