Sweden’s Thun Tankers on Saturday held a naming ceremony for its new liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered tanker in Groningen, Holland.

The tanker named Thun Evolve and built at Dutch Ferus Smit shipyard will be long-term leased by Preem for deliveries to the company’s depots and customers in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, according to a statement by Thun Tankers.

The ship will be delivered to Preem at the end of March.

“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 liquid natural gas (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.
