Sveinung Støhle opening speaker at Annual Summit 2015

20. March 2015
We are happy to announce that Sveinung Støhle, the CEO of Höegh LNG AS, will be the opening speaker at Annual Summit 2015 with a presentation entitled "FSRU - The Fast Track Solution for Energy Independence".
On Monday 27 October 2014, Höegh LNG delivered the FRSU "Independence" at the port of Klaipeda in Lithuania. The LNG will be delivered by Statoil for the first 5 years. The following is from "Delfi", by Lithuanian Tribune on the same day:
The floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), built for Lithuania’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, sailed into the port of Klaipėda on Monday morning. At a welcoming ceremony in the afternoon, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė and Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius said this was a groundbreaking achievement in the country's aspiration for energy independence.

The Korean-made vessel, aptly named "The Independence", appeared near Klaipėda shortly after 8 AM local time. The vessel measures 294 metres in length, 46 metres in width and 47 metres in height. Her speed is 18 knots. A total of 25,000 tonnes of steel were used for her construction. The vessel has 4 LNG storage tanks of a total capacity of 170,000 cubic metres.
The official welcoming ceremony in Lithuania's western Baltic port on Monday afternoon is attended by Lithuanian leaders, Estonian Foreign Trade and Entrepreneurship Minister Anne Sulling, Latvian Prime Minister Lamdota Straujuma as well as delegates from the US Senate, Norway, Finland, Sweden, the European Commission.

At the Annual Summit, Sveinung Støhle will present this and other cases for how energy independence can be achieved through the use of floating terminals like the one in Klaipeda.
