No more sea water scrubbing! Yesterday our Minister of Infrastructure @andreas_carlson declared that Sweden bans the use of ocean-polluting sea water scrubber technology from July next year. This is an important step forward for the environment, as well as a victory for Furetank and other shipping companies who have raised their voices against the use of this technique of transferring air emissions to our oceans, threatening aquatic life and biological diversity. "We have done all we can to push this legislative change for a long time, writing debate articles and raising the topic when we meet politicians. We are many shipping companies doing our very best to progress in all environmental areas. It is a great feeling that those who choose to do the opposite will be stopped, said our CEO @lars_hoglund who participated when the minister declared the upcoming reform at @almedalsveckanofficiell Read all about it in @sjofartstidningen #shipping #sjöfart #sustainableshipping

The best review we could ever get! Posted by @sjofartensutbildningsinstitut from our intern Aros, studying at @chalmers.university . What he describes is what we hope will help us recruit new crews for our upcoming VINGA vessels. An extract in English: "I have had the privilege of spending my final internship on board Furetank's newest pride, the Fure Vanguard. This impressive tanker, launched in 2024, is not only a technical achievement but also a symbol of modern shipping. Thanks to the chief mate, I have been able to explore every corner of the ship, which has enriched me with invaluable practical experience. What really sets Fure Vanguard apart is its customizable work environment. In my time off, the crew has become like a second family. We have shared many memorable moments together: from learning situations, movie nights to deep conversations during the journey. It is these moments that reinforce the sense of camaraderie and community at sea." Thanks for sharing Aros!

"Furetank today is a completely different company today from when I grew up. Its development is almost hard to grasp, everything moves in an astonishing pace. You just need to grab hold, follow along and support the company and people as best as you can. I find it very exciting.", says Yvonne.
