Bomin Sells Shareholding in Bomin Linde LNG
Bomin took the decision based on the speed of transition within the marine fuel supply chain in line with changing regulations. The demand for LNG has been slower than anticipated, and while LNG remains a viable clean fuel product, Bomin’s focus in the short to medium term will be on other alternative products that meet emissions regulations.
Linde AG may continue the activities of Bomin Linde LNG under the current name until the end of March 2017, before being replaced by a new brand.
The Bomin Group has been active in the bunker business for almost 40 years via its subsidiaries and is one of the world’s leading independent suppliers and traders of marine fuel. The business portfolio covers activities ranging from the supply of bunker fuels to lubricants and other services to the shipping industry. The company operates around the globe with more than 300 employees in 30 offices worldwide. Bomin is 100 percent owned by Mabanaft. www.bomin.com
