Erik Thun Group is excited to let you know that they have contracted eight new vessels to be built by Shipsveerf Ferus Smit B.V. in the Netherlands. When closing the books on 2022 and the 10-year anniversary of Thun Tankers in November, we are looking forward to the 85-year anniversary of Erik Thun AB in March 2023 and we believe we have a bright future ahead of us.

The signed contracts cover four multi-purpose dry cargo vessels with 5100 mts dwt and Ice class 1B. The remaining orders, for four 7999 mts dwt coastal tankers, are placed by Thun Tankers BV, part of the Erik Thun Group and adds to the two previously ordered resource efficient ’R-class’ tankers.
