Bomin Linde LNG has undergone a name change following The Linde Group’s acquisition of all of Marquart & Bahls’ shares in the company last autumn.
As of the 1st of April, the leading liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine fuel provider will operate under the name ‘Nauticor – Clean shipping powered by Linde.’
The rebrand is seen as a crucial step in the company’s development and positioning in the dynamic LNG marine fuel space, as Nauticor works towards commissioning the world’s largest LNG refuelling ship later this year.
Situated in Hamburg, Germany, the company’s strategy centres on covering the complete LNG supply chain – from sourcing and transport through storage and distribution to refuelling ships at strategically vital ports.
As Mahinde Abeynaike (left), Nauticor’s Managing Director, explained, “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.”
Olaf Reckenhofer, responsible for the Linde’s gas business in Central Europe, emphasised, “Nauticor brilliantly complements our LNG business. 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.”
