Marine Training School To Use S/S Annabella As LNG/LPG Training Ship

Chemikalien Seetransport (CST) of Hamburg, Germany, and Hanseatic Shipping Co. Ltd. of Limassol, Cyprus, have entered into a joint venture to establish the LNG/ LPG carrier S/S Annabella as a training ship for the training of LNG/LPG seagoing personnel.

The joint venture stems from the fact that the world's gas tanker fleet is facing a dramatic shortage of qualified seagoing personnel, both in the officers and ratings categories.

The two companies have a substantial interest in this type of tonnage and have decided to use the expertise of the Hanseatic Marine Training School in Cyprus, which has previously conducted LPG training courses.

It is the first time worldwide that an active LNG/LPG carrier engaged in shorthaul trading patterns will be utilized as a training ship. The vessel is capable of training 25 officers and ratings accommodated in double and single cabins at any one course of approximately two months' duration.

CST and HSC have agreed on a cost-sharing formula of the considerable initial and running costs.

The vessel will commence training activities in February 1991.
