Northern European short sea shipping specialist Thun Tankers BV on Wednesday (13 May) said its first product tanker Thun Blyth, with “NAABSA” design – Not Always Afloat But Safely Aground – was delivered and as of today, she is entering into a long-term agreement with UK based Geos Group Ltd.
Thun said its long experience of building resource efficient, high quality vessels has been used in the design process.
The development focus has been to maximise the vessel’s cargo intake and increase in-port performance; with the scope to allow further increased cargo lot sizes going into restricted niche ports.
The company added that resource efficiency, new regulations and environmental care has been a key consideration in the development of the new vessel.
Thun Blyth is built by Scheepswerf Ferus Smit BV and was launched in Leer through an online event in the end of August.
The company stated it has a longstanding relationship with Scheepswerf Ferus Smit and they have previously built more than thirty-five vessels for the Erik Thun Group.
Thun Tankers said a second NaabsaMAX has been ordered from the yard to be delivered in spring 2022.
