WWL Adds New Neo-Panamax Vessel to its Fleet

WWL Adds New Neo-Panamax Vessel to its Fleet
Danny Gill

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) recently unveiled its fourth Neo-Panamax class vessel named Themis. The vessel was built with the expanded Panama Canal in mind.

Like her sister vessels, Theben, Thalatta and Thermopylae, Themis is almost 200 metres long, 36.5 meters wide and features five liftable car decks, allowing for multiple configurations and a wide variety of 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. With the launch of Themis, WWL is now half way into the newbuilding order totaling eight new ro-ro vessels commencing service between 2015 and 2017.

On her maiden voyage, Themis’ first port of call was Yokohama, from where she is presently sailing with Bremerhaven as her final destination.
