Wallenius Lines has contracted with Xingang Shipyard in China for two Post Panamax car-carriers for delivery in 2015 and 2016.

The vessels will be 200 m long with a beam width of 36.5 m and a car carrying capacity equivalent to 8,000 cars. A combination of large capacity, optimized hull design and a number of energy saving features is intended to ensure the efficient operation and low environmental impact of these vessels.

“We believe in a strong market for our segment of shipping, and are pleased to have concluded the negotiations with Tianjin Xingang Shipyard in China for two state of the art Post Panamax car carriers with the option to build another two vessels, Anders Boman, President, Wallenius Lines comments.


Tianjin Xingang Shipyard is located in Tianjin City and is part of CSIC, the government Northern Shipyard Group of China.

The vessels will be operated by Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, owned 50% by Wallenius Lines.
