Incorporated in early 2009, WOMAR began as a 50/50 joint venture between Heidmar, Inc and other investors. Headquartered in Singapore, we operated the Marida Tanker Pool (10-14kdwt Coated IMO II Tankers) and later expanded our partners to include other tanker pools – Stainless Tanker Pool (19-25kdwt Stainless IMO II ships) and Sakura Tanker Pool (Aframax Tankers).
In April 2014, we marked a new milestone when BW Group acquired Heidmar’s 50% stake in WOMAR. The Group made a purchase of 11x 20kdwt Stainless Steel IMO II chemical tankers, entrusting the commercial management of the entire fleet to WOMAR.
In Sep 2019, FDX Offshore based in Westport, Connecticut acquired Womar. The purpose of the Womar/ FDX Offshore relationship is to build the best independent pool operator in the shipping industry. Anchored in Womar’s current chemical tanker pools, the partnership intends to both expand its chemical tanker pools by adding Orca Tankers Pool (30- 38k DWT IMO II ships) as well as initiate and grow independent pools in other classes of ships.
Today, we continue our founding quest as specialists in the commercial asset management of chemical and oil tankers. We trade worldwide with a focus on chemicals, vegetable oils, clean and dirty petroleum products and crude oil.
