R-class

May 3, 2024, Thun Reliance was launched in Leer, Germany. She is the second vessel in the ‘R-class’ series and was named by Godmother Camilla Dimberg, Head of Physical Management at Preem.


November 10, 2023, Thun Resource was launched in a festive event on site at the yard in Leer, Germany. The vessel was named by Godmother Ulrika Hamill, a representative of Nynas AB. Upon delivery, the Thun Resource will be technically managed by MF Shipping Group and enter into a five-year time charter to Nynas AB.

Resource efficiency

The vessel is the first of six ordered ’R-Class’ sisters that will be built by Scheepswerf Ferus Smit BV with delivery from 2024 and onwards. Adaptive propulsion to minimize energy usage, ready for shore electricity connection, UPS battery pack, the latest hull design and the newest and most resource efficient machinery are some examples of the vessel’s new features. The ordered vessels are part of Thun Tankers fleet renewal program, carefully tailor-made to meet our client’s future demands.

Nynas are very happy to see the collaboration of all parties involved in this project take shape in the form of this modern efficient vessel and we look forward to welcoming her into our operations early next year as another step towards our sustainable goals.

– Andrew Hamill, Chartering Manager at Nynas AB

The scope for the “R-Class” series have been to build the most resource efficient vessels available for the trade, with minimal environmental impact. We have been combining this with several new features to help Nynas AB grow their business while reducing their climate footprint.
