Bomin Develops Physical Infrastructure in Singapore
Since the beginning of October 2016, Bomin has deployed four modern, double-hulled barges in Singapore. All vessels have fast pumping rates, and can provide customers with a wide range of quality products. The vessels also have approved Coriolis Mass Flow Meters installed to ensure customers receive the quantity of products they order, as well as further speeding up the bunkering process.
While Bomin has been an MPA (Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore) approved supplier since 1988, the development of its physical infrastructure in the region will enable the company to deliver greater control of the end-to-end bunkering process, better integrating supply from the terminal to the customer jointly with its sister company, Matrix Marine Fuels Pte. Ltd.
Thomas Roller, Managing Director of Bomin Group, states: “The investment in developing our physical operations in Singapore comes at an important time for Bomin, as the bunkering sector is experiencing significant change. It is vital for us that we ensure our business is structured to seize the opportunities of a changing market, and to help our customers meet the new challenges that they face in relation to fuel supply. This means ensuring that all our operations, resources and infrastructure are geared towards delivering long-term and sustainable growth. Our investment in Singapore is an example of this.”
