International School of LNG launches first course in northern Spain
The new International School of LNG is launched with its first course, which has been held in the Jovellanos Centre and the Enagás regasification plant in El Musel (Gijón).
The aim of the course, titled ‘Safe Handling of LNG’, is to teach students about the behavior and routine handling of Liquefied Natural Gas. It has been delivered to 14 students from various professional sectors related to LNG, from plant supervisors to technicians from the emergency services.
The International School of LNG has been set up as a result of collaboration between the Maritime Safety Agency and Enagás. The main objective is to collaborate to offer training to professionals who work with LNG, both at a national and an international level.
LNG is one of the most environmentally friendly fuels, which is why its use is being promoted for marine transport and in ports, especially throughout Spain and Europe.
