HBV Shipping Society at Buskerud and Vestfold University College

Company visit at Scandinavian Bunkering and shipping quiz at mytteriet

Friday, 20.november some of the members in HBVshipping went on a company visit at Scandinavian Bunkering (SB).

SB is an international supplier of bunker fuel for ships, as well as lubricants and UREA. The company was founded in 1993, has offices in Tønsberg and Singapore and are around 40 employees. In 2014, SB had a yearly turnover of 760 million dollars, around 6 billion kroner, only second to Jotun in Vestfold. The company has many of the worlds leading maritime companies on its customer list, and holds a contract with NATO for the refuelling of certain member countries vessels.

It was a presentation from the CEO, Erik Vinde. He told us what a trader do, why they are successful and the challenges they have today. We are sure everyone learned a lot during the presentation.


After the company visit we went to Mytteriet for a quiz. It was great turn up and we will try to make this an monthly event.
