Støhle said: “We have been very successful in growing our FSRU business, with currently six FSRUs and two LNGCs in operation, and we have another three FSRU projects coming on stream the next 18 months; in Ghana, Pakistan and Chile. Höegh LNG is the leading company in the FSRU segment, and we have a clear objective to further strengthen our position in this market. In order to optimise the way we work we are therefore adapting our organisation to further improve our performance and competitive position. I am also very pleased to be able to draw from the experienced and highly competent members of the existing management team, since this ensures seamless handovers and is a testament to the depth of and broad experience that the members of the Höegh LNG team possess."
