How WALLENIUS SOL ships withstand extreme cold

The design team from WALLENIUS SOL and Wallenius Marine visited the Aker Arctic ice test facility in Finland. A seven-metre long model of the ship was constructed to navigate through the water containing artificial ice.




The world’s first ice-classed RoRo ship running on multi-fuel, and with a dead weight as high as 26,900 tonnes. The vessel was optimized for the transportation of paper products for the forestry sector.
