Alfa Laval to acquire BunkerMetric

Alfa Laval has signed an agreement to acquire BunkerMetric, a Scandinavian software company that develops advanced decision support tools for marine bunker vessels. The acquisition is part of Alfa Laval’s strategy to expand its digital marine service offering and will be part of the recently acquired StormGeo, a global leader in weather intelligence software and decision support services. Closing of the acquisition is expected during Q3, 2022.

BunkerMetric, headquartered in Denmark, supports ship operators in finding the best bunker procurement plan and improving voyage margins by using sophisticated algorithms. The optimization tools, together with StormGeo’s advanced route services, will enable ship owners to streamline operations to help them improve their bottom line. BunkerMetric’s procurement optimization tool will become a subscription service within StormGeo’s existing offering.

“BunkerMetric will be a valuable complement to our expanding portfolio of solutions built upon advanced digital technologies,” says Sameer Kalra, President of the Marine Division, Alfa Laval. “This acquisition will strengthen our ability to support our customers in voyage routing and operational decision making, thereby helping them improve their vessels’ operational costs.”
