Delivery of Thun Empower

Nov 25 2021


Thun Tankers are proud to inform that we have taken delivery of Thun Empower.

The vessel is the fourth “E-Class” tanker in a series of four gas powered, high quality vessels built by Scheepswerf Ferus Smit B.V in the Netherlands. Upon delivery, the Thun Empower will be trading within the Gothia Tanker Alliance network.

 

Thun Tankers is part of the Erik Thun Group, a company owned by the Källsson family since 1938. For decades we have designed increasingly economic and energy efficient quality ships, using in-house knowledge to provide our customers with sustainable and cost efficient transport solutions.

 

The E-class vessels are a further evolvement of Erik Thun’s existing fleet and focus on efficiency, environmental care and customers’ needs has been essential when developing the new vessels. The vessels are built to the absolute latest design meeting and often exceeding existing and forthcoming regulations. The new vessels reduced fuel consumption with an increased cargo intake, less exhaust emissions and lowered noise levels are a few examples of that.

 

This series of tankers provide our clients with the dynamics of always having climate smart high quality tankers in the right position at the requested time. - Joakim Lund, CEO, Thun Tankers BV.

 

We always strive to meet our customers’ various demands with the best solution available for the time being, as their sustainable Swedish partner over generations. - Johan Källsson, Managing Director at Erik Thun AB.
