Preem and Thun Tankers Focus on More Environmentally Adapted Tankers


In a major development, Thun Tankers recently named their new, environmentally adapted tanker “Thun Evolve” in Groningen, Holland. The tanker, a long-term charter will be leased by Preem for deliveries to the company’s depots and customers in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, says a press release on their website.

The ship will be delivered to Preem at the end of March. The vessel, built in the Netherlands, is a welcome addition to the company’s commitment to a safer, efficient and sustainable maritime transport, with the least possible environmental impact.

Why is it important?

“Thun Evolve has been built with the latest design to meet and exceed current and upcoming environmental regulations.”

“Thun Evolve meets high standards of safety, the efficiency with a very low environmental impact and can be powered by liquid natural gas (LNG) or Biogas (LBG)”, says Joakim Lund, Chief Commercial Officer at Thun Tankers.

Preem’s maritime transport also applies “just in time”, which means that the vessels optimize and adjust speed to minimize the time of anchorage at refineries and ports. This contributes to lower fuel consumption, increased safety, and the least possible environmental impact.

What it means for the company?

“Our maritime transport is an important part of Preem’s operations. We are therefore very pleased with the company’s latest addition of new environmentally adapted tankers, using the latest hull design for improved performance, lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions. It is also in line with Preem’s high-end sustainability requirements”, says Fredrik Backman, Head of Shipping Department at Preem.
