Construction of Wallenius’ New Vessel Starts Soon

The new site office in Tianjin China will be open in less than two months. Steel cutting of the first Wallenius new post-panamax vessel is scheduled to 16th of June 2014.

First delivery is planned for October 2015 and the last and fourth for the end of 2016.

Visually the most striking difference from their earlier generations of PCTCs and LCTCs is, apart from the 4.3 m larger post-panamax beam, its vertical bow designed to give better performance in waves than conventional bulbous bow-designs.

The accommodation is a one-tier design in order to obtain a low wind profile. The wheelhouse, navigation equipment and layout will be similar to previous designs.

On the engine and propulsion side, as in the whole project, the company is aiming for lowest possible fuel consumption. Examples of that are the integrated propeller and rudder design with a bulb on the rudder for higher efficiency and a new type of shaft generator of permanent magnet-type with higher efficiency.
