Thun Tankers orders new product tanker for Geos charter

Sweden’s Thun Tankers has placed an order for a 4,250 dwt product tanker at Dutch yard Scheepswerf Ferus Smit, with delivery scheduled for October 2020.

The vessel will be built with a “Not Always Afloat But Safely Aground” design, and on delivery will go onto a long-term charter with UK-based Geos Group. The design enables the vessel to call at tidal restricted niche ports.

Joakim Lund, CCO of Thun Tankers, commented: ”We have identified the demand for improved niche size tankers with increased performance and cargo capacity. This NAABSA-Max tanker will be built to the absolutely latest design, enabling Geos Group Ltd. and their clients’ access to the most efficient transport solution available in this size of shipments.“
