Tower Bridge usually opens for cruise ships and sailing ships, but in a couple of weeks time, a tanker ship will be visiting London and passing through Tower Bridge.
The chemical tanker, M/T FureVinga is owned by Swedish shipowner Furetank, and is the seventh in a series of ten vessels that are being designed with a special focus on minimal impact on the environment. The vessels have a battery hybrid solution and several innovative features that reduce fuel and energy consumption resulting in extensively lower emissions of CO2, Sulphur oxide, Nitrogen oxide and hazardous particles. The ship is in London for a reception being hosted by the Swedish Embassy for people attending MEPC 78 to show off its environmental credentials.
The M/T FureVinga will arrive in London, passing through Tower Bridge on Monday 6th June at 7:30pm, and will moor alongside HMS Belfast. The tanker leaves London on Wednesday 8th June at 7:30am.
There won’t be any public tours, so this is more a chance for us Londoners to see an unusual visitor to central London passing through Tower Bridge.
