Ludvig Nobel

Ludvig

Ludvig Nobel (Swedish Ludvig Emmanuel Nobel) 27.07.1831 – 12.04.1888 - Swedish and Russian engineer, inventor, entrepreneur and philanthropist, the elder brother and business partner of the founder of the Nobel Prize Alfred Nobel.

 

Nobel controlled the company "Nobel and Sons" in St. Petersburg. He was engaged in development and manufacture of artillery shells, mines, torpedoes, steam engines, machine tools, rubber tires and diesel engines.

 

L.Nobel marked the beginning of oil and kerosene storage infrastructure as well as oil handling in Odesa. In 1884, "Nobel Brothers" started to equip three tanks, each of 120,000 pounds and kerosene pipe line from the harbor to the reservoirs in Peresyp district (Odesa oil base).

 

Prior to 1883 the port of Odessa served only as an "entry gateway" for kerosene. Since 1884, the situation changed dramatically. Odessa became aggressive and effective competitor in the global market, gradually pushing out American companies.
