Shipping firm Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean has expanded its fleet with the Neo-Panamax vessel MV Titus, capable of carrying 8,000 cars.

Built at China’s CSIC Xingang shipyard, MV Titus is the first of a series of four Post-Panamax vessels with a combined capacity of 32,000 CEU. The second vessel in the series is expected to enter service later this year and two are scheduled for delivery in 2019.

WW Ocean already has four vessels of the HERO design in operation, which have proven their ability to deliver from an operational and environmental perspective.

“For a modern, efficient and environmentally sound fleet, Wallenius Wilhelmsen continues to replace older tonnage with modern vessels in line with our long-term plan. As it starts its journey today, Titus is one of the most efficient neo-panamax vessel on the seas,” Michael Hynekamp, President & COO Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean, said.

Titus is a High Efficiency RoRo (HERO) class vessel specially designed to reduce energy consumption and emissions per tonne/kilometer cargo transported, according to Oslo-based Wallenius Wilhelmsen.

The advanced hull is tailored for efficient operations in a wide range of sea conditions, and improves the cargo to ballast ratio. The increased beam of 36.5 meters provides better stability, hence less need for ballast water.

On its maiden voyage, Titus' first port of call will be Yantai, from where it will be sailing the Asia – North America trade.
