This summer, three naval architecture students from KTH was given the task to explore alternative wing designs for wind-powered vessels. “A dream job” says Filip Wängelin, who will continue to work in the project.
The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) have invested about 27 million Swedish crowns for the development of the concept wind-powered car carrier, also known as wPCC. Chief Strategist Rein Jüriado tell us why they did that.
Christening a ship is a naval tradition dating back thousands of years. It has become somewhat of a public celebration and a solemn blessing. It is usually done by breaking a sacrificial bottle of champagne over the bow as the ship is named aloud.
m/v Titus was the first Pure Car and Truck Carrier ever built at the shipyard CSIC Xingang. All from the design phase, to pre-contract stage and to delivery, we supervised the project and made it real.
On June 11, Wallenius Marine’s latest newbuilding project, the HERO vessel m/v TITUS, sailed from Xingang Shipyard. TITUS is the first vessel in a series of four, now ready for
operations for Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean & Solutions. First port of loading was Tianjin, China, before she set sail for North America – Asia trade.
