Small-scale player Avenir LNG welcomes new board member

London-based small-scale player Avenir LNG said that Carlo Ravizza of Hoegh Capital Partners has joined its board of directors, replacing LNG veteran Sveinung Stohle.

Stohle left Avenir’s shareholder Hoegh LNG in November last year after 15 years at the helm of the floating player. He joined Greek shipping giant Angelicoussis Group as the company’s new deputy chief executive officer.

Peter Mackey, CEO of Avenir LNG, thanked Stohle for the support and “wealth of experience” he brought to Avenir. He said Avenir wishes him every success in his future ventures.

Ravizza will replace Stohle as Avenir’s new board member. He is an investment director at Hoegh Capital Partners and board member across various HCP companies with over 15 years experience in the real assets space.

Hoegh Capital Partners acts as financial advisor to the Hoegh family’s business, which includes Hoegh LNG.

“We are delighted to welcome Carlo to our board, and we look forward to working with him as we continue to grow Avenir into the world’s leading small-scale LNG supplier,” Mackey said.

Besides Hoegh LNG, Avenir’s shareholders include Stolt-Nielsen and Golar LNG.

The JV has a fleet of four 7,500-cbm and two 20,000-cbm LNG bunkering and supply vessels. Avenir has taken delivery of four of these vessels and should welcome the last two ships later this year.
