Foreship has promoted Viktor Gingsjo to the newly created position of head of project management services.
Based in Mariehamn, Finland, Gingsjo will head a team of consultants dedicated to project and technical management for shipowners seeking complex services including installations based on alternatives to fuel oil.
“Over the past two years, there has been a significant rise in demand from our customers for the project management services offered by Foreship,” said Lauri Haavisto, the company’s managing director. “The move to create a new department headed by Viktor reflects the good work he has done to date, but also represents a strategic extension in the services we offer. Collecting our project management in one team will clarify the complete package of services that is available to owners from Foreship and enhance our flexibility and responsiveness.”
