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.

Founded in 1883 by Swedish engineer and inventor Gustaf de Laval, Alfa Laval's products are focused on three core competencies: heat transfer, separation, and fluid handling and in each it possesses the number-one market position. De Laval patented the centrifugal milk-cream separator in 1878. The legacy of this invention is in the Alfa Laval's separation business, generating about one fifth of group revenue with 25%-30% global market share. Alfa Laval expanded later into heat exchangers, its largest segment, and eventually fluid handling.
