Thun Tankers has ordered four coastal tankers

Thun Tankers has ordered four coastal tankers
The vessels will be built to a similar size as the sixteen tankers that Thun Tankers currently operates. The intention is to gradually replace some of the existing tankers with the ordered new-buildings.

The vessels will be built by Scheepswerf Ferus Smit B.V. in the Netherlands, with whom Erik Thun Group has a longstanding relationship. The shipyard has previously built more than thirty vessels for the Erik Thun group.

The ordered new-buildings will be a further development of Thun Tankers’ existing fleet. Thun’s long experience of coastal shipping has been used in the process of tailor making and optimizing the new-buildings. Focus on sustainability, new regulations, environmental care and customers’ needs has been key when developing the new vessels that will be built to the absolute latest design.  The intention is to offer sister-ships where the use of LNG as a fuel is a possibility, depending our clients request. Having built the worlds’ first dry cargo ships that uses LNG as a fuel, MV “Ireland” and MV “Greenland”, Erik Thun has a solid knowledge of operating vessels that uses natural gas as a fuel.

Anders Källsson, CEO, Erik Thun AB

“We in Erik Thun have always had a high focus on resource efficiency that translates into modern environmental care. We are convinced that these vessels will contribute to provide the best logistical and most environmental friendly transport solution to our customers”

Joakim Lund, CCO Thun Tankers

” This series of new tankers will continue to provide our clients with the dynamics of always having climate smart high quality tankers in the right position at the requested time.”

– Johan Källsson, Deputy Managing Director, Erik Thun AB

” We always strive to meet our customers’ various demands with sustainable solutions. With this order we intend to further extend that offer by building a series of identical sister ships where some uses LNG as a fuel and others don´t.”
