Nb. 451 was successfully – digitally – launched at the Leer yard of Ferus Smit.

Nb. 451, named as ‘Thun Equality’ is the third ship in a series of new oil/chemical tankers that was developed for Erik Thun AB from Lidkoping, Sweden.

As the delivery of the first Ferus Smit tanker to Erik Thun dates back nearing 20 years, this new ship will be the third unit in renewal of the fleet of 10 coastal tankers that were delivered to Erik Thun by Ferus Smit over the past years. We are proud that Ferus Smit was again trusted to built the succeeding series as well.

The new design will be a completely revised and updated version of the existing design, that has proven herself over the years as a benchmark in the coastal tanker market. Focus for improvements has been to further optimize efficiency and ecological footprint. Therefore the new tanker will be fueled by LNG, with a pressurized tank installed on the tank deck.

The ship will measure 7999 DW tons and 9540 m3 cubic volume in 9 coated cargo tanks, suited for MARPOL and IMO type II chemical cargoes. Main dimensions to be Loa 115m, B 15.87 mtr, draft 6.95 mtr, Iceclass will be 1A FS, suitable for year-round Baltic service. Propulsion will be from a 2999 kW Wartsila 6L34DF main engine.
