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.
