Erik Thun Group
The Erik Thun Group is a family company in the second generation, now also involving a third. We regard continuity within the family as a guarantee that we preserve our values also in the future. On this page you can read more about our current business activities.
The group owns and operates around 40 vessels. You can find all fleet lists and photos on our ships page. These range in size from 4,000 to 10,500 tons deadweight and are divided into four segments:
Our subsidiary company, Thun Tankers, is market leader in North West Europe for smaller product tankers. Thun Tankers fully owns 13 tankers and together with our partners we operate 15 tankers in sizes ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 dwt.
Our conventional dry cargo ships are of Väner-max size and sail between Lake Vänern, the west coast of Sweden, the Baltic Sea and Continental and Mediterranean ports. They are commercially managed from our head office in Lidköping. You can view the fleet list for the Dry Cargo ships here.
Our seven self-unloading ships range in size up to 10.500 dwt and are all fitted with Thun Cargo Scooper discharging equipment. They are trading different commodities in Nordic Europe, Mediterranean and between Brazil and Canada and are commercially managed by our subsidiary Citadel Shipping.
Our seven cement carriers are co-owned with Norwegian shipowner KGJ Cement AS, through the joint venture JT Cement AS. They are between 3,700-7,300 dwt and operate in northern Europe.
The Erik Thun Group runs two port agencies.
OP Ship AB started as a company in April 2017 and is part of the Erik Thun Group. When the Group acquired the majority stake in the ship broking company OP Svensson Shipping AB they merged together with Erik Thun owned company Segerhammars Skeppsmäkleri. Together they now trade under the name OP Ship. The ambition is to become the obvious choice as a supplier of dry cargo vessels in the European market. http://www.opship.se/
