Traviata joins Wallenius fleet

Wallenius Wilhelmsen has added the ro-ro vessel Traviata to its fleet.

With a capacity equivalent to 8,000 cars and electrically hoistable deck panels, Traviata is the second of a series of four post-Panamax Hero-class vessels to join the Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet.

“The vessel class is setting a new benchmark in terms of energy efficiency, improving consumption with approximately 15 percent, resulting in considerably reduced emission levels compared to similar vessels in the global fleet,” said Michael Hynekamp, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean’s (WW Ocean) chief operating officer.

The third Hero-class vessel is scheduled for delivery later this year and the fourth in early 2020. The first in the series of newbuilds, Titus, entered service in June 2018.

Traviata’s first ports of call will be in Japan, loading in Omaezaki and Higashiharima. It will then sail on the Asia-North America trade route.

Titus and Traviata are the first large car and truck carriers (LCTC) built at CSIC Xingang shipyard and are the first Chinese-built LCTCs in the WW Ocean fleet.
