Swedish transport firm Furetank objectives to occupy its total posthaste renewed and environmentally friendly because it ordered two more twin-gas Vinga product tankers in China.


The 2 ships can be constructed on the China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou, with provide anticipated on the conclude of 2026 and starting set of 2027.

Upon provide, Furetank’s posthaste will consist completely of environmentally proven, top usual vessels with a median age of two years.

The vessels are quantity 20 and 21 within the Vinga series of intermediate dimension product tankers and can be fully owned by Furetank Rederi AB. They might maybe change older tonnage, which device that every vessels within the Furetank posthaste can be of the emission-saving Vinga get.

The Vinga series has been at the moment expanded within the ideal few years, for the explanation that ships occupy been completely got available within the market. The abilities has proven to be grand and efficient, meeting all expectations, in keeping with the firm.

“We are very contented to prevail on this level on our lag, working finest ships with the most in fashion emission-saving abilities. We occupy completed our homework. When these vessels arrive, the practical age of our posthaste can be no longer up to 2 years. Since the introduction of the Vinga series in 2018, Furetank has developed valid into a substantially higher transport firm with our focal level role on environmental growth. It has been an ideal lag,” Lars Höglund, Furetank CEO, acknowledged.

The fairway abilities on board is developed and complex with the constructing of every new vessel. Basically the most in fashion addition is two methane bound reducing technologies, a greenhouse gas (GHG) good aquire equipment and low load optimization equipment, co-developed by Wärtsilä and Furetank. They might maybe even be implemented in all upcoming vessels and retrofitted into modern Vinga ships.

Exams performed both within the factory and on board modern a methane bound good aquire of an spectacular 45-50 per cent, the firm acknowledged.

The Vinga series is designed for the intense and tense switch within the North Sea and Scandinavia, successfully suited to meet the growing European question of for biofuels and renewable feedstocks.

“Our prospects are turning into more environmentally conscious and placing higher importance on reducing the climate footprint of their total provide chain. With a broad posthaste of energy efficient vessels, we can provide better carrier to prospects and optimize the posthaste shopping and selling pattern, reducing our climate influence even further,” explained Lars Höglund.

The newbuilds can be entered into the Gothia Tanker Alliance and operated by Furetank out of Gothenburg, flying the Swedish flag. This brings the Vinga vessel series to a complete of 21 ships, out of which 19 can be commercially managed and 14 fully operated by Furetank.

The Vinga ships are ice class 1A 17,999 dwt product tankers designed by Furetank in conjunction with FKAB Marine Invent. All of them occupy twin-gas capacity, jog on LNG/LBG or gasoil and are fully geared up for shore energy.

They’re designed with a battery hybrid resolution and several modern parts that decrease gas and energy consumption, leading to broadly diminished emissions of CO2, sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide and unsafe particles.

The ships occupy scored the correct Energy Efficiency Invent Index or EEDI worth of their phase globally, which device that they’re the most energy-efficient vessels in keeping with the World Maritime Group (IMO).
