Wärtsilä has been selected to supply the engines for four new 7999 dwt chemical tankers being built for Swedish fleet owner Erik Thun.

The ships will be constructed at the Ferus Smit shipyard in the Netherlands. The order with Wärtsilä was booked as order intake in Q1 2023. The Wärtsilä equipment will be delivered to the yard commencing in Q4 2024, and the first of the four ships is scheduled for delivery in mid-2025.

The vessels will operate with the Wärtsilä 25 engine, the latest addition to the company’s engine portfolio, which features outstanding fuel economy, low emissions, and smoke-free operation at all loads.
