Norway-based floating LNG giant Höegh LNG has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Regional Maritime University in Ghana for the support and maritime capacity development for both RMU and Ghanaian seafarers.

Quantum Power Ghana is also party to the agreement, which was signed on June 16.

Using a new, purpose built floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) provided by Höegh LNG, Quantum Power intends to build and operate an LNG import facility offshore Tema.

Under the new deal, Höegh LNG intends to actively work with the Regional Maritime University to increase the competence of Ghanaian seafarers, RMU lecturers, Ghanaian pilots and tug masters.

The company said in a statement it also aims to build Ghanaian ability to safely and efficiently operate and handle advanced gas carriers.

“LNG is set to become an ever more important part of Ghana’s energy mix, and it is important that Ghana develops its own capacity to handle LNG installations,” Höegh LNG said.
