Preem and Thun Tankers focus on more environmentally adapted tankers

Thun Tankers has named its new, environmentally adapted tanker Thun Evolve in Groningen, The Netherlands. The tanker will be long-term leased by Preem for deliveries to the company’s depots and customers in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. 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 safer, efficient and sustainable maritime transport, with the least possible environmental impact.

“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, efficiency with a very low environmental impact and can be powered by LNG or Biogas (LBG)”, said Joakim Lund, Chief Commercial Officer at Thun Tankers.

“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”, said Fredrik Backman, Head of Shipping Department at Preem.

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