The second tanker in the Thun E-class series was launched in the Netherlands in December 2018.
Thun Evolve follows on from Thun Eos, which was launched in the summer of 2018. Together they form a quartet of tankers being built for the account of Erik Thun AB of Sweden by the Ferus Smit shipyard.
Thun Tankers’ chief commercial officer Joakim Lund said: "Thun Evolve meets high standards of safety, efficiency with a very low environmental impact and can be powered by liquid natural gas (LNG) or Biogas (LBG)."
The tanker will be long-term leased by Preem, the largest fuel company in Sweden, for deliveries to the company's depots and customers in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The ship will be delivered to Preem at the end of March 2019.
Preem’s head of shipping Fredrik Backman said: "... The company's latest addition of new environmentally adapted tankers [uses] the latest hull design for improved performance, lower[s] fuel consumption and reduce[s] emissions."
The tanker sector is in the middle of fuel revolution – book now to hear more at the Asian Tanker Conference in Singapore in Febuary, 2019.
