Thursday, January 31, 2013

OW Bunker acquire two bunker barges for Nordic operations: 'OW Copenhagen' and 'OW Aalborg'.

Prior to the acquisition, OW Bunker operated both vessels on a bare-boat charter from international shipping company the Clipper Group.

OW Copenhagen and OW Aalborg are modern double-hulled 3,500dwt tanker barges, built in 2006 and 2005 respectively. Both vessels have a tank capacity of 4,260 m3, fast pumping rates of up to 600 m3/hr and are oil major approved. As part of the company’s strategy to develop the highest standards within its physical division, the vessels also have Coriolis flow meters to ensure customers receive the right quantity of product during supply.

OW Bunker’s physical supply division in the Nordic region spans Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania (Klaipeda), Faroe Islands, Norwegian Sea, Finland, Latvia, Estonia, Poland and the North Atlantic. The operation uses seven state-of-the-art vessels, all with high pumping rates and mass flow meters.

Jane Dahl Christensen, Executive Vice President, Physical Division, OW Bunker, commented: “Acquiring these state-of-the-art vessels is testament to our continued commitment to further strengthening our physical supply division in the Nordic region."
