Independent supplier and trader of marine fuel Bomin Group Thursday closed its Dubai office and announced a new Managing Director.
The closure of the Dubai branch is part of the process of consolidating and restructuring its business, and existing customers in the region will be served through Bomin’s global network.
At the same time, Jan Christensen, former Head of Global Bunker Operations, takes over from Thomas Roller as Managing Director for Bomin Bunker Holding in Hamburg.
“We thank Thomas Roller for his dedication and contribution to the company throughout the years,” said Raphael Huettmann, Managing Director of Mabanaft, Bomin’s parent company.
“With Jan Christensen, I am pleased that we have a successor with experience and operational knowledge in the global bunker industry.”
Manifold Times earlier reported Mabanaft recording ‘unsatisfactory’ bunkering results in 2017.
Bomin in January 2018 sold subsidiary NWB Nord- und Westdeutsche Bunker GmbH to Varo Energy subsidiary Reinplus VanWoerden Bunker GmbH at an undisclosed amount.
