Meet the crew

10 Mar 2020

We present our first edition of Meet The Crew -  Meet Daniel & Torbjörn

-Meet The Crew, is going to take you closer to the people that works onboard our ships and get to know the Terntank crew a little better! Name: Daniel Leopando Position: Master Current vessel: Ternvik Years with Terntank: 14 What are important factors to have “happy ship” according to you? -A happy ship should have a spirit of camaraderie. A good relationship to each and every crew is important, giving them my full support and attention not only at work but also to their personal matters if needed. I let them feel that their work is being appreciated even in small things that inspire them to do more, than what is expected. What is your advice to future cadets? -For the future cadets, always remember that experience is the best education. Keep on learning. Perseverance, hard work and discipline are the key to success! Name: Torbjörn Beyersdorf  Position: 2:nd Engineer Current vessel: M/T Ternvag Years with Terntank: 3,5 How do you like it onboard M/T Ternvag? I like it. For me a tanker on the spotmarket is what life at sea should be like.Why? Several reasons. One is that it is easy to stay in touch with my family due to the trade. Another reason is that anyone in the office is just a phonecall or email away. It doesn’t matter if I call the superintendent or even the owner of the company. They answer and give me the support I need. Last but not least. HR-department called when I was having a crisis at home and just asked how I am. Small thing but means a lot. What is your advice to the future seafarer? For cadets. The most important thing is curiosity. Keep asking questions and don’t be afraid to look stupid. The best cadet I’ve ever had asked the most stupid questions. It is also important to not accept any form of harassment if that should occur. What to see more pictures? Go and follow us on Instagram Terntank Chatering or go straight to the post by clicking on the names. Daniel & Torbjörn.

Terntank orders next generation hybrid tankers

05 Nov 2019

Terntank orders next generation hybrid tankers – The journey towards fossil free operations continues

Terntank orders two new LBG/LNG powered chemical/product/biofuels tankers on 15,000 dwt with hybrid battery system and on-shore power from AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding Ltd with an option for two more vessels. The new-builds are designed by Kongsberg (ex Rolls-Royce) and they will be in operation in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea in 2021. The close cooperation with the customers and with the crew at shore and onboard, has made it possible to further develop the environmentally friendly supply chains and to take the next steps towards carbon-neutral shipping. Doing business in a sustainable way and cutting down emissions are the core values for Terntank and its customers.

With these AVIC SERIES 2.0 vessels Terntank continues its journey as the forerunner in environmentally efficient and safe shipping. The protection of the marine environment and maritime safety have always been of top priority for Terntank, a family owned company having its roots on the island of Donsö. Terntank was the first shipowner to order LNG powered product tankers in 2013.

Vessels will be developed from experience of the previous AVIC SERIES with many additional innovative improvements to reduce environmental impacts. Terntank’s new vessels will significantly reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impacts in the supply chain with LBG/LNG powered engines, hybrid battery systems and on-shore power. Terntank strongly supports the greenhouse gas reduction targets of the maritime sector. The next generation LBG/LNG powered product tankers will give a strong lead in reaching the greenhouse gas reduction goals of the International Maritime Organization.

The new-builds are capable to operate with liquefied biogas (LBG). The vessels will be equipped with new electric power supply system including battery pack, shore-power connection and bow thruster drive (hybrid). Energy consumption and emissions? are further reduced with the latest digital solutions for operational optimisation.
