Thun Tankers & Gothia Tanker Alliance add newbuilding Thun Venern to the fleet
We are very pleased to announce that the product/chemical tanker M/V Thun Venern was delivered during Thursday to the Erik Thun Group, on site at the Chinese shipyard AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd.
She is the third vessel being delivered in a series of six, all designed by FKAB together with Furetank Rederi AB. Special attention has been paid on minimal impact on the environment, with close to 50% reduction of CO2 emissions. This also includes full Tier III, dual fuel/LNG propulsion including LNG in port consumption, LNG for IG-boiler, battery backup (UPS) for all vital functions and special ballast water cleaning system and Ice class 1A. M/V Thun Venern is an intermediate tanker with a dwt of almost 18,000 tons and LOA 149.9 meters. She will be commercially managed by Furetank Chartering, which is part of the Gothia Tanker Alliance.
Thun Tankers adds niche port max sized tanker – increases partnership with Wisby Tankers
We are pleased to announce that Thun Tankers will strengthen the existing fleet with m/t Wisby Teak. The Wisby Tanker owned vessel will enter the Gothia Tanker Alliance with immediate effect and be commercially managed by Thun Tankers.
The highly manouverable, 7,000 deadweight tanker has been tailor designed to maximize deliveries into restricted ports. With an overall length of 99.9 meters the vessel is able to reach smaller load and discharge installations. With a pumping capacity of 1,000 m3 an hour, cargo heating, superstrip system, vegoil and chem resistant coating we are convinced that the Wisby Teak will add value to our clients.
“With Wisby Teak in our fleet we can further increase our client offering with another modern high quality tanker that is able to reach and maximize cargo intake in ports and terminals with restricted accessibility.” – Joakim Lund, CCO, Thun Tankers
”With this third added tanker we do not only deepen our good co-operation further with Thun Tankers and the rest of the partners in the Gothia Tanker Alliance, we can also widen our joint offering towards our customers” – Jonas Engström, Managing Director, Wisby Tankers
