Thun Tankers Adds Ship for Deliveries into Restricted Ports

Dutch coastal shipping company Thun Tankers has reached an agreement to strengthen its fleet with the 2011-built tanker Wisby Teak.

Under the deal, the company will add the 7,000 dwt vessel to the Gothia Tanker Alliance with immediate effect. The unit, which is owned by Swedish shipping company Wisby Tankers, will be commercially managed by Thun Tankers.

The highly manouverable tanker has been tailor designed to maximize deliveries into restricted ports. With a length of 99.9 meters, the vessel is able to reach smaller load and discharge installations.

“With Wisby Teak in our fleet we can further increase our client offering with another modern high quality tanker that is able to reach and maximize cargo intake in ports and terminals with restricted accessibility,” Joakim Lund, CCO, Thun Tankers, said.

The development will also strengthen the relationship between Thun Tankers and Wisby Tankers.

“With this third added tanker we do not only deepen our good co-operation further with Thun Tankers and the rest of the partners in the Gothia Tanker Alliance, we can also widen our joint offering towards our customers,” Jonas Engström, Managing Director, Wisby Tankers, added.
