Time Charter contracts with Neste, Preem and Mercuria

During the year we have been able to close not less than six T/C contracts. Four contracts to Neste, one to Mercuria and one new contract with Preem. It has been tough negotiations but in the end we are very happy that we have been able to agree upon Terms and Conditions.

We are looking forward to intense our cooperation with Neste and Preem, two business relations that have been very important for us during the years. We are also looking forward to build up a new cooperation whit our new customer, Mercuria.

These contracts would never have been written without our god records on our vessels. A result of hard work in the land based organization and specially a very hard work onboard our vessels. We would like to put a special thank to all our crew members for their hard work.

SCR Catamizer installed on Ternvag

Terntank Rederi AB and Preem AB equips chemical and product tanker Ternvag with a catalytic converter on the main engine and a SCR Catamizer on each auxiliary engine. To make a really substantial environmental investment is very stimulating, says Tryggve Möller, CEO of Terntank Ship Management at Donsö.

Terntank expect the installation to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 370 tons per year, nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions by 230 tonnes and also the consumption of gasoil with 120 tons per year. Catamizern is a combined catalytic converter and exhaust gas boiler that both recovers the heat in the flue gases and purify them.

A beloved colleague has past away

After a long battle against a severe disease, Olle Kristensson passed away on February 15th, 2011. Behind him, he leaves his wife Annika and the children Karin, Annie and Sofie. Olle was a family man who put his immediate family in the first place, but there were still plenty of room in his big heart for very many people. It is said that no man is irreplaceable, but Olle leaves a void space with us, his friends in the shipping companies of Donsö, that can’t be filled.

Music was an indispensable part in Olle’s life, but so were also shipping. Olle was a dedicated, competent and highly responsible as a shipowner. When circumstances called for major changes to secure the future of the company, Olle, who loved his island of Donsö, took the tough decision to move to Skagen, Denmark, together with his family, to establish a new residence for the company. This alone was a major loss for the shipping community of Donsö. Olles dedication to shipping went far beyond his company. We are grateful for Olle’s efforts to promote the Swedish shipping industry in so many ways, and he was always an exemplary representative of all Donsö shipping companies. Olle was an emphatic man who always spread joy and warmth about him. We mourn a very good friend and colleague.The sense of loss after Olle is great, but his memory will for ever be here as a source of warmth and light, a power source that will generate the energy we need to continue in his spirit.

We call on peace be upon him, and send our warmest thoughts to Olle’s family.

”You are on your way. One day, the night becomes white. One day and stars grow out of his arms. Don’t be afraid, there is a darkish harbour. You don’t see it now, but travels there.” (extract and free translation of hymn 432 in the Swedish Book of Hymns).
