Next generation intermediate product/chemical tankers with LNG propulsion

Furetank Rederi AB, Rederi AB Älvtank and Thun Tankers BV are building six intermediate size tankers at Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd. The vessels – of which Furetank will own three, Älvtank two and Thun Tankers one, two have been delivered (Fure Vinga and Ramanda) and the other four are expected in 2018-2019.

The vessels are built to a design, developed by FKAB together with Furetank with special focus on minimal impact on the environment, with close to 50 % reduction of CO2 emissions. The vessels fulfills the Tier III rules, have dual fuel/LNG propulsion including LNG in port consumption, LNG for Inert gas production, power production with floating frequency, battery backup (UPS) for all vital functions to minimize use of auxiliary engines, installed ballast water cleaning system, ice class 1A and Alternative Propulsion System.

The vessels will be commercially managed by Furetank Chartering in the Gothia Tanker Alliance.


 It has been very interesting and developing for Furetank together with FKAB to create a design for future product/chemical tankers. These vessels will be designed to meet all known future demands both from governments, the industry and from our customers.”

– Lars Höglund, CEO Furetank Rederi AB

We in Erik Thun have always had a high focus on cost awareness and resource efficiency that translates into modern environmental care. Having built the worlds first dry cargo vessels that uses LNG as a fuel is an example of that. Therefore we are convinced that these vessels will contribute to provide the best logistical and most environmental friendly transport solution to our customers
