The Bomin Group, a leading global physical supplier and trader of marine fuel oil, today announced that it is launching a physical operation in Copenhagen, Denmark. The expansion is in line with the company’s ambitious plans for growth throughout 2015. The Copenhagen operations complement Bomin’s existing physical network in the Baltic Sea region, including Tallinn, Stockholm and Rostock.
“Securing supply in key markets for our customers is an important part of the growth strategy for the Baltic region”, said Anatoli Belov, Managing Director Bomin Baltic. “Our physical offering enables us to take more control of the bunkering process, ensuring that customers are provided with quality products and at the right quantity, as well as looking at all opportunities to maximize their operational efficiencies. We plan to phase our physical expansion within Copenhagen, beginning with providing products ex-pipe and by truck.”
Available immediately is the provision of Marine Gas Oil delivered ex-pipe. All deliveries are supplied using a mass flow meter to ensure customers are provided with the exact quantity of gas oil that they order. Bomin will not charge customers port fees, providing further value. The company can also provide smaller product quantities by truck, which can be delivered to customers directly at berth in Copenhagen, increasing efficiencies and minimizing downtime, as well as into smaller ports in the Copenhagen area and South West Sweden.
Jan Christensen, Regional Manager Northwest Europe concluded: “The development in Copenhagen is the first of several planned expansions within our network. Despite the continued challenges within the shipping industry, Bomin is well placed, financially robust and with the strong backing of its parent company to drive growth and increase market share.”
The Bomin group has been active in the bunker business for more than 35 years via its subsidiaries and is one of the world’s leading independent suppliers and traders of bunker oil. 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 a staff of more than 300 in 36 offices worldwide. Bomin is 100 percent owned by Mabanaft.
