Aurora brand fades as BW takes control

Aurora brand fades as BW takes control

BW LPG, having fully taken over Norway’s Aurora LPG last month, has now moved to rebrand the firm and its fleet.

As part of the integration process, BW LPG has announced that all of Aurora’s ships, will be renamed to BW pre-fixed names.

Moreover, BW LPG has announced it will open new offices in Houston and Oslo.

The nine-ship Aurora fleet gives BW LPG a 52-strong fleet, a dominant hold in the VLGC trades.
