Next generation tankers

Thun Tankers orders series of next generation energy efficient and sustainable chemical 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.



Thun Tankers expands its presence in the European 5-10,000 dwt small product tanker segment.

From end December Thun Tankers will take ownership of the vessel m/t Nordic Trine, which until now has been owned and managed by Nordic Tankers. The vessel, that will be renamed m/t Thun Greenwich, will be commercially managed from Thun Tankers office in Gothenburg. MF Shipping Group will handle the ship management of Thun Greenwich. The Thun Tankers-managed fleet between 5-10,000 dwt thus consists of a total of sixteen vessels trading in Europe, offering our customers flexibility, reliability and quality performance.

“-Thun Tankers always strives to alter and match our fleet to our clients’ existing requirements and this ship will further add to that” says Thun Tankers CCO, Joakim Lund.

“-We thank Thun Tankers for their trust and confidence in our company. This vessel perfectly fits in our high performing fleet and underlines our strong partnership with Thun Tankers” says Karin Orsel, CEO MF Shipping Group.

The vessel will be upgraded to Thun standards at Falkvarv Shipyard, Falkenberg, before being taken into trade.
