Høglund works to enhance clean shipping
Høglund is launching two new divisions to give owners, operators and crew access to a full spectrum of automation, gas and hybrid services.
Høglund Gas Solutions and Høglund Power Solutions will sit alongside Høglund Marine Automation in order to help operators switch to a lower carbon, cleaner shipping future.
“2020 will be the biggest shock to shipping since the switch from coal to diesel. New LNG, electric and hybrid propulsion technologies are emerging as vital solutions, but these will require a fresh approach to maritime systems engineering,” said Børge Nogva, CEO of Høglund Marine Services.
At the forefront
Mr Nogva explained that the company has been working at the forefront of design solutions for a new generation of electric vessels and helping pioneer the automation of entire new vessel segments such as the LNG bunkering vessel.
Høglund Gas Solutions will build on Høglund’s engineering expertise and previous experience in creating gas handling systems, supporting the growing market need for LNG fuel systems, including gas handling in the LNG bunker vessel segment.
Meanwhile, Høglund Gas Solutions will focus specifically on fuel gas supply systems and cargo handling systems.
At the same time, Høglund Power Solutions will focus on electric and hybrid vessels and integration of battery and electrical storage systems.
Høglund launched its new automation, gas handling and power solutions at this year’s SMM.
