Accra, July 19, GNA – The Regional Maritime
University (RMU) Ghana has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with
Höegh LNG, a major player in the liquid natural gas (LNG) segment of the
maritime industry to support capacity development for seafarers.

A statement from Höegh LNG said Quantum Power
Ghana was also a party to the MoU.

Professor Elvis Nyarko, the Vice Chancellor of
the Regional Maritime University, signed on behalf of the University, Mr
Oeyvind Staerk of Höegh LNG AS, the Norwegian management company of Höegh LNG,
signed for Höegh LNG, while Quantum Power Ghana was represented by Mr Ruben
Atekpe.

Höegh LNG intends to actively work with RMU to
increase the competence of Ghanaian seafarers, RMU lecturers, pilots and tug masters
to build the ability of Ghanaians to safely and efficiently operate and handle
advanced gas carriers.

LNG is set to become an ever important part of
Ghana’s energy mix and it is important that Ghana develops its own capacity to
handle LNG installations.

Höegh LNG has a very substantial track record
in building maritime LNG capacity in other countries in which it operates
Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) vessels, and will draw on that
experience to the benefit of Ghana once the FSRU had been deployed here.

Using a new, purpose provided by Hoegh LNG,
Quantum Power intends to construct, own and operate LNG terminal facility
offshore at Tema.

Höegh LNG provides floating energy solutions
and operates world-wide with a leading position as owner and operator of
floating LNG import terminals; floating storage and regasification units and is
one of the most experienced operators of LNG carriers.
