Thun Vettern Joins Thun’s Fleet: Advanced LNG Dual-Fuel Ship


Delivery of Thun Vettern

Swedish shipping company Erik Thun Group has taken delivery of Thun Vettern, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel vessel from the Vinga series.

The 17,999-dwt vessel was built by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou and is an upgraded version of the sister Thun Venern.

Sister Vessels

All the sister vessels are designed by Furetank together with FKAB with a focus on minimal impact on the environment. The vessels in the Vinga series all have dual-fuel capability, run on LNG/LBG or gasoil, and are fully equipped for shore power connection when available in ports.

According to Erik Thun, they are designed with a battery hybrid solution and several features that reduce fuel and energy consumption, resulting in extensively lowered emissions of CO2, sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide and hazardous particles.
