Terntank names LNG-fueled tankers
Terntank Rederi which is operated from Skagen, has named two of the company's four new LNG-powered tankers. The naming took place over the weekend at the Chinese shipyard Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding.
The first ship was named M/T Ternsund by Marita Gunnarsson, mother of Annika Kristensson, part owner in Terntank Rederi. The tanker is delivered from the yard at the end of June this year and the company expects that it will take about 5-6 weeks to sail her to Europe. She will be time chartered to North European Oil Trade.
M/T Ternsund will primarily distribute petroleum products from Neots refinery in Gothenburg, ST1.
The second vessel, which was named M/T Ternfjord, will be delivered in August and, on arrival in Europe be time chartered to Exxon Mobil in Norway. She will primarily distribute petroleum products from ExxonMobil's refinery in Slagentangen near T°nsberg to own and external customers along the Norwegian coast.
The ship's name has a historical connection to southern Norway since Terntank's previous M/T Ternfjord was built in Tonsberg, not far from the ExxonMobil refinery in Slagen.
M/T Ternfjord's godmother Cia M÷ller, the wife of the company's Fleet Manager Claes M÷ller, is seen on the big picture in the article.
The last two remaining ships in the series will be delivered later in 2016/early 2017.
