The Mozambique liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, which will produce LNG in the north of the country, has recruited 10 Mozambican vessel traffic supervisors to participate in an international maritime signalling training programme.
“Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) Operators will undergo high quality training, not only in Mozambique but also abroad, receiving certification which is valid around the world,” a press release from the consortium says today.
The 12-week training programme is run by the International Maritime Signalling Association and the operators to be trained come from Mozambique’s Nautical School.
Those selected will be responsible for managing all maritime vessel traffic within the port and the Mozambican concession area, and will ensure the safe and efficient transit of ships on a 24-hour basis.
“I lived in Cabo Delgado and have seen the transformation that this project is bringing to the communities of Palma and beyond. I want to be part of that transformation, contributing to the development of the country,” said Miguel Calime, one of those selected.
Recruiting these operators is part of the strategy of maximising local content participation in this project, which will recruit around 5,000 Mozambican workers during the construction phase, the consortium estimates.
The Mozambique LNG Project will be the first onshore LNG project in Mozambique, initially composed of two LNG production modules with a total capacity of 12.88 million tons per year, adds the press release.
