WWL Adds New Vessel to Fleet

WWL Adds New Vessel to Fleet
Danny Gill

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) recently added Theben, a brand new High Efficiency RoRo (HERO) class vessel.

Theben is the third in a total of eight “Post Panamax” vessels to be launched in the years 2015-2017. She joins her sister vessels Thalatta and Thermopylae in the line of RoRo vessels taking advantage of the new vessel size limit based on the third set of Panama Canal locks expected to commence operation in June this year.

Like her sister vessels, Theben measures almost 200 meters long, 36.5 meters wide and features five liftable car decks, allowing for multiple configurations and a wide variety of customer cargo. The vessel can transport up to 8,000 car equivalent units. With the new draft, she can call ports with shallower depths, increasing her geographical scope of service. Theben has a specially designed hull shape, rudder and bow to reduce drag and wave resistance, thus improving fuel efficiency. She is also fitted with an exhaust gas cleaning system that reduces sulfur emissions to below 0.1 per cent in compliance with ECA regulations and removes 70 per cent of particulate matter.
