Lars Persson appointed as new technical project manager at Swedegas

Lars Persson has been appointed as technical project manager at Swedegas. The focus will be on working with the company’s planned LNG infrastructure investment programme.

Swedegas owns and operates the Swedish gas transmission grid, which extends from Dragør in Denmark to Stenungsund in Bohuslän. The company transports gas to distributors and directly connected customers, primarily industrial enterprises, combined heat and power plants and vehicle filling stations. Development projects are directed at establishing an infrastructure for biogas and LNG (liquefied natural gas).

“We are extremely pleased to have Lars on the team with his unique expertise and experience,” said Johan Zettergren, Swedegas chief executive.

As shipping, the transport sector and industry make the switch from oil-based products to alternatives with a lower climate impact, LNG is becoming increasingly attractive. Strategically located LNG terminals make it possible for all sectors to secure access to LNG, even outside the present gas grids.

Lars joins the company from the consultancy firm ÅF, where he has worked with business development, specialising in LNG. Prior to that, he worked at Aga/Cryo, where he was also chief executive. As a project manager at Aga/Cryo he worked on several national and international projects, including the construction of the LNG terminals in Lysekil and Nynäshamn in Sweden.
