Wallenius Lines and Svenska Orient Linien, SOL, have formed a joint shipping company – WALLENIUS SOL – which operates scheduled services from five ports in the Gulf of Bothnia to and from Europe/UK.
The main cargo in this traffic, will be paper products and other types of goods, such as steel, trailers and containers. The fleet consists of five RoRo vessels for the traffic to and from the Gulf of Bothnia. These vessels are filled with paper products (fine paper and cardboard) on their way south, and back north with other cargo. The paper products are loaded on cassettes, as well as SECU and containers.
WALLENIUS SOL has ordered up to four RoRo vessels run by LNG power, to be built 2019-2021. With these vessels, combined with existing fleet, WALLENIUS SOL can offer transports with higher efficiency, but at the same time reducing the environmental footprint.
