Høglund at Motorship conference in Hamburg

Høglund at Motorship conference, 14-16 November 2018 to discuss safety of LNG-Powered Fleet

HØGLUND CEO BØRGE NOGVA TO JOIN PANEL OF EXPERTS AT MOTORSHIP CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS SAFETY OF LNG-POWERED FLEET

As the popularity of LNG as a marine fuel grows exponentially, in tandem with a global transformation to a lower carbon, cleaner shipping fleet in line with 2020 regulations, how can the maritime industry ensure that its vessels and supporting infrastructure are safe, efficient and built to last?

This question is expected to spark a compelling discussion during the ‘Safety Spotlight’ panel at the upcoming Motorship Propulsion and Future Fuels Conference.

Spearheading the debate will be Høglund’s CEO Børge Nogva, who will discuss how an increased focus on automation for LNG vessels can improve operational safety and long-term reliability.

Having pioneered the automation of entirely new vessel segments such as the LNG bunkering, Nogva will draw from Høglund’s expertise as the leading global marine automation and system integration expert, to show how a renewed, industry-wide focus on maritime systems engineering is required to enable a smooth and safe transition away from heavy fuel oils.

Børge will be joined by a panel of LNG experts from across the industry, including representatives from DNV GL and Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.
