Thun Tankers took delivery of the second L-class, Thun London, in China on July 2. 

The 18,650 deadweight product tanker is the second in a series of five resource efficient, high quality tankers built by Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd in China. The L-class tanker has been designed and developed in-house, using the Erik Thun group’s long experience of building sustainable, high quality vessels. Focus on environmental care, new regulations and customers’ needs has been key in the design and building process of this vessel type. 

Like her sister ship, Thun Lidkoping, the new tanker will enter into the Gothia Tanker Alliance network with crewing and technical management done by MF Shipping Group.
