On May 9th, Thun Tankers took delivery of the 18,650 deadweight product tanker Thun Lidkoping. This L-Class vessel is the first in a series of five resource efficient, high quality tankers built by Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd in China. On the same day, the 8,000 deadweight Thun Evolve was delivered to Thun Tankers by Ferus Smit BV in the Netherlands. Mr Joakim Lund, CCO of Thun Tanker, said “It is a historic day for our company with the delivery of both Thun Lidkoping and Thun Evolve on the same day. With the E-Class and L-Class series in trade, we are further strengthening Gothia Tanker Alliance possibility to serve our clients with climate smart tankers in the right position at the requested time.

Both the L-Class and the E-Class tankers have been designed and developed in-house, using Erik Thun’s long experience of building sustainable, high quality vessels. Focus on environmental care, new regulations and customers’ needs has been key in the design and building process of both vessel types. The new tankers will enter into the Gothia Tanker Alliance network with crewing and technical management done by MF Shipping Group.
