Marine automation and system integration expert Høglund launched two new divisions, the Høglund Gas Solutions and Høglund Power Solutions.

The two business entities will sit alongside Høglund Marine Automation under the Høglund Marine Solutions brand, providing automation, gas, and hybrid services, the company said in its statement.

Høglund Gas Solutions aims to support the growing market need for LNG fuel systems, including the pioneering gas handling in the LNG bunker vessel segment. The unit plans to 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.

Commenting on the reasoning behind the decision to launch its two new units, Børge Nogva, CEO of Høglund Marine Services, said, “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.”

“This is why we’re expanding our services to include Høglund Power Solutions and Høglund Gas Solutions,” Nogva concluded.

The launch of the company’s automation, gas handling and power solutions is scheduled for the first week of September at the SMM fair in Hamburg.
