Kanfer Shipping AS is proud to announce that they have appointed Mr. Håkan Werner as a senior advisor.
Håkan brings 30 years of experience from the liquid gas market and more importantly hands on experience of the small-scale LNG market. He left I.M. Skaugen last year where he held several key positions and last as Commercial executive Norgas Carriers. He also served as Vice President Business Development for small scale LNG.
“Kanfer finds Håkan’s experience, network and professionalism important for our future growth. We are proud to bring him onboard. His main tasks initially will be to connect Kanfer with the right partners for future expansion”, says Stig Hagen, Managing Partner of Kanfer Shipping. “Håkan’s experience is unique in this market and there are few people with such expertise” concludes Mr. Hagen.
Kanfer Shipping’s solution is based on the American articulated tug barge solution (ATB). It basically solves three problems in one go; providing small scale LNG transportation (shipping), a floating LNG storage (FSU) and potentially regasification on the barges (FSRU). The solution consists of two “ship shaped” barges and a tailor-made tug. One barge (FSU) will at any given time be connected to land side and pumping LNG/natural gas ashore. The other barge will be connected with the tug and be on its way to or from the LNG source. When the barge and the tug reach project-port (fully loaded), the empty barge will be replaced with the fully loaded barge making sure that there is continuous supply of LNG/Natural gas to the project owner. The barges may be self-propelled so that the barges can operate separately within the port and e.g. do bunkering of ships. This is a virtual pipeline that is highly cost efficient, flexible and robust.
