The marine transportation of LNG is the only sector of merchant shipping where steam propulsion systems remain widely employed and are still being installed.
SIGTTO’s members recognised the importance of establishing agreed competence standards for Engineers operating and maintaining these vessels. This set of standards forms default minimum training recommendations for best practice.
As a guidance document, this set of standards is not, and cannot be, considered mandatory. However, SIGTTO believes that they represent current best practice for operational training standards for Engineers, and strongly recommends that they should be adopted and improved where necessary by those engaged in the operation of this ship type.
