Bomin Affirms Commitment to Baltic Bunkering Market

The Bomin Group, a leading global physical supplier and trader of bunker oil, today reaffirmed its commitment to providing physical bunkering products and services in the Baltic, including Rostock, Germany’s largest Baltic port. In line with the company’s new regional hub structure, Bomin’s Hamburg office will take responsibility for physical operations and infrastructure in the region.

Bomin Deutschland is operating two state-of-the-art bunker barges in the Baltic area – MT BERGEN TROLL and MT LIOBA – providing customers with a full range of quality products including MGO DMA 0.1%, RMG 380 3.5%, RMD 80 0.1%, and RME 180 3.5%. The company will cover the ports of Rostock, Lübeck, Travemünde and Kiel, servicing customers quickly and efficiently in port, and via road, and ensuring continuous supply through its storage infrastructure and barge capacity in the region.

Commenting on the development, Jan Christensen, Head of Global Bunker Operations, said: “Rostock is an important region for our customers, with real demand for a full spectrum of quality products, including MGO to ensure compliance within the Baltic Emissions Control Area. By controlling the operation from our German regional hub in Hamburg, in conjunction with our local physical supply and storage capabilities, we can ensure that our customers receive the highest quality of service standards, maximizing operational and cost efficiencies from order through to final delivery.”
