Welcoming Lithuania's President


We have Lithuania’s president Ms. Dalia Grybauskaitė visiting the shipyard for the naming of Höegh LNG’s Independence LNG FSRU. I interviewed the project manager from this team a few months ago. You can read the article in the Winter 2013 edition of the company magazine on page 18. It gets a bit technical, as these kind of articles do. My last articles for this magazine will be an interview with the project manager from Carigali Hess and an article about Hyundai Heavy’s first shipbuilding order.

Here’s a video from the Lithuanian client.

And some press coverage

It’s a bit of a tradition to have a woman sponsor the ship. It’s quite rare for a head of state to do it (it would be the spouse of the head of state, in that case).
