we are: change

2019-03-26 09:00:00

MARCH 2019

We have two new buildings in order. We have a new generation on the way in. We are expanding with both existing and new customers.

The fact that we are prepared for the future is now clearly evident to the outside world with the update of our graphic profile. It is simple, straightforward and clear – just like Donsötank. As a long-standing acquaintance of ours, you will no doubt come across the old logo or the old brand mark at some point in the future. We will keep the transition as brief as possible. If you see anything we have missed, we would be delighted if you could let us know (we realise the chimneys will take a little extra time).

We are changing, but we remain the same company. Welcome to the new Donsötank – and the same Donsötank.

Donsötank have contracted two oil products and chemical tankers

2018-12-18 13:00:00

Donsötank have contracted two oil products and chemical tankers, at Wuhu Shipyard Co. Ltd. The vessels will be delivered in 2021. 

The vessels are designed by FKAB, based on a well-known low-resistance hull design. Together we have a long relation in development of newbuildings, with focus on safe transports, working environment and to reduce the impact on the environment. The vessels are ice strengthened to ice class 1A, LNG driven, shore connection for port operations, prepared for 1000 kWh battery-pack and several other advantages for flexible and stable transports. 

The vessels will be commercially managed by our Navix Maritime Chartering and will be strengthen their fleet with tankers for the future.

Deadweight                                 22.000 mt
Cargo capacity                             28.000 cbm
L.o.a                                                167,7 m

Main Engine                                 Wärtsilä 10V31 DF

Donsötank decide to go for Optixdrive

2018-11-10 20:00:00

We have decided to install Optixdrive from Optixmarine AB in Solero and Solando during the spring 2019. The Optixdrive is a gearbox that will make it possible to run the main engine at lower speed with the shaft generator connected. This will reduce the running hours on the auxiliary engines and save fuel on the propulsion system. We believe that Optixdrive in combination with Lean Marine will reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions considerably.
