As of 1st April 2017 Bomin Linde LNG, one of the leading providers of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, will be operating under the name “Nauticor – Clean shipping powered by Linde”.
The company is being given the new name following technology company The Linde Group’s acquisition of all of Marquardt & Bahls’ shares in Bomin Linde LNG in autumn 2016.
“The rebranding is another step in our development and positioning in a space as dynamic as the market for LNG as a marine fuel. In this environment, the combination of a financially and technically sound partner such as Linde with a high degree of autonomy and flexibility is of great importance”, explains Mahinde Abeynaike, Nauticor’s Managing Director.
“Our planned commissioning of the world‘s largest LNG refuelling ship in the coming year demonstrates that we are on course for growth.”
“Nauticor brilliantly complements our LNG business”, adds Olaf Reckenhofer, who is responsible for the gas business for Central Europe for The Linde Group. “In addition to our LNG terminal and our bunker barge near Stockholm, we are able to offer our customers a unique LNG supply network in the Baltic Sea region thanks to Nauticor.”
Commercial business with customers and suppliers will be conducted under the new name starting 1st April. The legal form, bank details and place of business remain the same.
