Wallenius Lines has signed for up to six car carriers with Chinese shipyard CIMC Raffles. The 6,500 ceu ships will be LNG-powered and will fly the Swedish flag when they deliver. The deal breaks down as two firm orders and four options.
Kleberg Jonas, chairman of Wallenius, commented: “Today is a big day for Wallenius as we confirmed our next generation low emission car carriers. Wallenius is always committed to work with a premium and long-term partner, and we believe CIMC Raffles is our optimal selection.”
No price has been revealed for the ships.
