Foreship appoints Head of Project Management Services to meet shipowner demand

Foreship has appointed Viktor Gingsjo as Head of Project Management Services – a newly-created post that reflects a significant rise in demand for this aspect of the leading naval architect and engineering company’s services.

The new role, effective from September 1st, has been created to recognize growing customer requirements that go above and beyond those covered by typical design services. Mr Gingsjo has already gained considerable experience as a project manager with Foreship but his new role will see him head a newly-formed Project Management Department, which streamlines and formalizes this part of the company’s still-growing service portfolio.  

Based in Mariehamn, Mr Gingsjo’s experience extends across newbuild and refit projects, especially in the cruise ship sector, and he has particular expertise in working with LNG as a fuel. He will head a team of consultants dedicated to project management/technical management for owners seeking complex services including the installations based on alternatives to fuel oil, and waste heat management systems.
