Knowing you, Knowing ME-GI
Launched in September 2015, Teekay’s newest LNG carrier Creole Spirit has the potential to save the company $20,000 on the cost of fuel every day. Alongside companion ship Oak Spirit, soon to be delivered from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of South Korea, and seven more identical vessels on order, the annual fuel saving could reach $65 million. Of course, it’s unlikely that all nine vessels would sail 365 days a year. But Teekay Gas is pretty busy.

Integrated training: Teekay Gas’ KONGSBERG ship-handling simulator is next door to the new ME-GI training facility. The bridge features a K-Chief 700 ME-GI console that will be connected to the ME-GI trainer so what happens there, will affect what happens on the bridge.
