The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) appointed Jens Maul Jørgensen of Oldendorff Carriers as its Vice-Chairman. He will therefore become Chairman in April 2014. Dilip Mody of Global Fuels & Lubricants has been reappointed Honorary Treasurer.
The appointments were made at meeting of the association’s board in Istanbul this week.
Welcoming the appointments IBIA chairman Simon Neo said, “I’m delighted to be supported in my role as IBIA chairman by Jens. As marine fuel buyer for a major shipping company, he brings an important perspective to the association at a time when owners are looking at the impact of ECAs and low sulphur regulations.”
He added, "Dilip has been a loyal IBIA member, has huge experience in the Indian market and has been with us since our inception in 1993.”
