Thun Intm 5 low res

Tailor made to meet customers’ high demands

We have taken delivery of four and are finalizing the fifth 18,650 dwt IMO II product/chemical tanker at the Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd in China. We have a long history of building efficient high quality vessels and the L-class has been carefully tailor made to meet our clients’ high demands. Focus on energy efficiency, sustainability, new regulations and customers’ needs has been key in the development process. The vessels are built to the absolute latest design and four of them are in trade while the fifth will be delivered this summer.

“In Erik Thun, we have a long history of building, owning, and operating both tankers and dry cargo ships in different sizes and with different trading areas, always with the focus on our clients’ needs. We have built and operated intermediate size product tankers in the past and are comfortable to re-enter into the intermediate segment with our new-buildings. To commercially place the vessels with our close partner Furetank was a natural decision for us”
-Anders Källsson, Managing director, Erik Thun AB

”With the investments in intermediate tankers we do not only deepen our good co-operation further with the partners in the Gothia Tanker Alliance, together with our smaller coastal tankers we can also widen our joint offering towards our customers”
– Johan Källsson, Deputy Managing director, Erik Thun AB
