July 9 – Fure Viten

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > Ship of the Week > July 9 – Fure Viten

Owned by the Swedish firm Furetank, the Fure Viten product tanker was delivered from the China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou in late June. The brand new gas-powered 17,999 dwt Fure Viten has a very low Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) score of 4.65 points, more than 50% better than the required score for this size of ship. She is the last in a series of eight ships that the Swedish owner has taken delivery of over the past months – four of which it owns and another four it commercially operates. With the delivery of Fure Viten, the average carbon dioxide emissions from Furetank’s fleet has been slashed by 50% compared to 2008 levels, the baseline IMO took when making its 2050 goals. The eight dual fuel vessels will be operated with liquefied biogas or LNG. Fure Viten and preceding sister vessel Fure Vinga are the very first tankers in Europe that are fully equipped to operate the energy-demanding cargo pumps with 6.6 kV high voltage shore power.
