MONTH/YEAR: March 2021
NAME/RANK: Petros Gkagkanatsios, Chief Officer
THEME: Simulated Cargo Handling

The training moment was captured during an Oil Tanker Cargo Handling Course, when the discussion focused on the Cargo Control Console, from which the cargo/ballast pumps and the valve remote control system can be operated, and indications of level gauging, inert gas, and other equipment are displayed.

P. Gkagkanatsios compared the features of a modern oil tanker cargo control console to a full-mission cargo handling simulator, having in mind that the new generation of Officers are called to deal with more complex petroleum cargoes that require a thorough understanding and excellent skills in these operations.
