Thun Tankers took delivery of the third L-class, Thun Liverpool, at Avic Dingheng in China. Just like her sister ships, Thun Lidkoping and Thun London, she will enter the Gothia Tanker Alliance network.

On Wednesday 13th, Thun Tankers took delivery of the 18,650-deadweight product tanker “Thun Liverpool”. This Lclass vessel is the third in a series of five resource efficient, high quality tankers built by Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd in China.

The L-class series have 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. The new tanker will enter into the Gothia Tanker Alliance network with crewing and technical management done by MF Shipping Group.
