Wallenius Lines has placed an order for up to six LNG-powered car carriers with CIMC Raffles’ Longkou plant. The deal is for two firm contracts for dual-fuel 6,500-unit car-equivalent vessels and four options.

The new generation vessels are designed by Danish naval architects Knud. E. Hansen and will have a LOA of 200 metres and a beam of 37 metres. They will be Swedish-flagged.

“Ro-ro vessels are one of our major products, we invest an advanced laser-hybrid welding production line at our Longkou plant, which had already been successfully applied at roro vessel construction,” said Wang Jianzhong, CEO of CIMC Raffles.
