2000s: A New Identity

In 2003, World-Wide acquired Norway's Bergesen d.y. ASA, the world’s largest gas carrier operator. The acquisition brought together two well-established businesses with similar commitments to quality. Bergesen Worldwide was established as a holding company incorporated in Bermuda in October 2003.

In 2005, a re-organisation and rebranding exercise brought all businesses under a single group brand, BW. BW Group Ltd was incorporated in Bermuda and became the holding company of the Group in April 2007.

The BW Group comprises BW LPG, BW Offshore, BW Pacific, BW LNG, BW VLCC, BW Chemical Tankers, BW Dry Cargo and BW Fleet Management. BW LPG and BW Offshore are public companies listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
