We are excited to welcome Hirohide Gohda (Hero) as our new Director and Head of Office in Japan.

Most recently as Deputy Managing Director at Mitsubishi in Australia, where he was also a board member of the LNG Marine Fuel Institute.

“With the appointment of Hirohide Gohda, we are reinforcing our goal for Svanehøj to be the preferred supplier of pump systems for gas carriers.
