Linde Group’s unit Bomin Linde LNG will start operating under the name Nauticor, following the 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,” said Mahinde Abeynaike, Nauticor’s managing director.
Abeynaike added that the company is set for growth with the planned commissioning of its LNG bunkering vessel in the coming year.
Speaking of the rebranding of the Bomin Linde LNG unit, Olaf Reckenhofer, who is responsible for the gas business for Central Europe for The Linde Group said Nauticor complements the company’s LNG business, as it enables the company to offer an LNG supply network in the Baltic Sea region.
Commercial business with customers and suppliers will be conducted under the new name starting April 1, according to the Nauticor statement.
Nauticor, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany is a provider of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel for the shipping industry.
