Sweden-based shipowner Furetank Rederi, a part of the Gothia Tanker Alliance, has taken delivery of its new chemical/product tanker, the 20,000 cbm Fure Vinga.

Featuring a length of 149.9 meters and a beam of 22.8 meters, the newbuilding was delivered by China’s shipbuilder Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding.

The tanker will be commercially managed by Furetank Chartering in the Gothia Tanker Alliance.

The 16,300 dwt tanker is a part of a batch of six vessels ordered by Furetank Rederi together with the alliance partners Thun Tankers and Älvtank Rederi.

Being built to a design developed by FKAB together with Furetank, the vessels have a minimal impact on the environment, with close to 50% reduction of CO2 emissions.

They fulfill the Tier III rules and have LNG for inert gas production, power production with floating frequency, battery backup (UPS) for all vital functions to minimize use of auxiliary engines, installed ballast water cleaning system, ice class 1A and Alternative Propulsion System.
