Wartsila to power Thun LNG-fueled tankers

Finnish engine maker Wärtsilä has been contracted to provide engines for four new LNG-powered tankers of Sweden-based Erik Thun.

Besides engines, Wärtsilä will supply propellers and fuel supply systems to the dual-fuel coastal tankers that are being built at the Scheepswerf Ferus Smit yard in the Netherlands.

The order with Wärtsilä was booked in the first quarter of 2017.  The equipment will be delivered to the Ferus Smit yard commencing in 2018.

The 115 metre long coastal tankers feature a ‘next generation’ design focusing on high energy efficiency, low noise levels both above and below the water, and environmental sustainability, Wartsila said in a statement.

The four 7,999-dwt coastal tankers are scheduled for delivery from the fourth quarter in 2018 onwards.

When delivered, the ice-class 1A vessels are expected to be capable of handling the year round sailing conditions in the Baltic Sea.
