Ship design & newbuilding

Stricter regulations on emissions create the need for inventive solutions and new types of ships. We have been frontrunners for more than two decades, often meeting the IMO regulations already before they enter into force.

Designing vessels for the future today

Our Design teams have close working relationships with customers and with other teams within Wallenius Marine. Insights from daily operations and digital real time monitoring statistics are taken into consideration when designing new types of vessels. Our aim is to support attentive shipowners to reach the goals set by IMO.

Over a decade ago, we realized the potential of, and need for, emission free shipping. We contributed to the developement of Orcelle – the world’s first emission free car carrierToday, we continue the journey towards truly sustainable and emission free shipping.

Just recently the HERO vessel m/v TITUS set sail. She is one of four vessels of our newest RoRo design, estimated to run on 15% less fuel consumption as compared to benchmark level.
