A legal case between Finnlines, a shipping operator of ro-ro and passenger services in the Baltic Sea, and Bomin Group subsidiary Ostsee Mineralöl-Bunker GmbH (OMB) has been dismissed by the District Court of Rostock.
Finnlines, in its financial year (FY) of 2017, summoned OMB to the District Court alleging the latter of abusing its dominant position in the Rostock bunker market as the sole supplier of marine fuel at Rostock, Germany.
It claimed EUR 2.76 million (USD $3.19 million) in compensation for damages incurred due to the difference between the price paid for the supplied fuel and the market price.
“In its decision the District Court of Rostock dismissed the Company's claims in full,” said Finnlines in its latest Financial Review January – June 2018 report.
“The Company has appealed to the Court of Appeal against the District Court’s decision. The Court of Appeal has rendered its decision dismissing the claim of the Company.
“The case is closed.”
