We are excited to welcome Hirohide Gohda (Hero) as our new Director and Head of Office in Japan. Hirohide Gohda has extensive experience with LNG projects, which he has gained through a long career at Mitsubishi, where since 1994 he has managed Mitsubishi Corporation’s interests in LNG projects in the Asia-Pacific region. 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 Svanehoj to be the preferred supplier of pump systems for gas carriers. Hirohide Gohda has a robust commercial and LNG trading capability, having spent a large part of his career focusing on contract negotiation and commercial roles associated with market development and the sale of LNG,” says sales director at Svanehoj, Johnny Houmann.

Svanehoj has supplied numerous specialized deep well pumps for the newbuilding market in Japan. Most recently, we entered into a contract with Kawasaki Heavy Industries in October for the supply of pump systems for two new VLGCs.
