We are happy to announce that Erik Thun AB has granted Ferus Smit Shipyards an order for building an additional 4 new vessels.

The contracts exist of two multi-purpose dry cargo vessels of 5100 dwt with Ice class 1B which add to the four previously ordered “Lake Vanern Max” vessels and two 7999 dwt coastal tankers which add to the six previously ordered resource efficient “R-class” tankers. The total of fourteen vessels will be delivered between 2024 and 2027.

With these new orders, we are again able to maintain continuity at our yards during these challenging times. We therefore thank @erikthungroup for the confidence and look forward to continue our long term relationship in the years to come!

Ferus Smit: An impression, a movie is worth a thousand words!

On Monday the 1st of March 2021, Our Nb. 451 ‘Thun Equality’ was successfully launched at the Leer yard of Ferus Smit.

A nice movie of one of Symphony’s DP2 vessels using its pipe handling system. As you can see, the ship hardly moves thanks to the DP2 system.
