On November 10 Thun Resource (flying the Dutch flag) was launched in Leer, Germany. The vessel was named by Godmother Ulrika Hamill, a representative of Nynas AB. Upon delivery, the Thun Resource will be technically managed by MF Shipping Group and enter into a five-year time charter to Nynas AB.
The vessel is the first of six ordered ’R-Class’ sisters that will be built by Scheepswerf Ferus Smit BV with delivery from 2024 and onwards. Adaptive propulsion to minimize energy usage, ready for shore electricity connection, UPS battery pack, the latest hull design and the newest and most resource efficient machinery are some examples of the vessel’s new features. The ordered vessels are part of Thun Tankers fleet renewal program, carefully tailor-made to meet their client’s future demands.
