Wallenius Wilhelmsen to build wind-powered RoRo ship by 2025

Named the Orcelle Wind, the vessel design is scheduled to be ready for contracting with a shipyard by mid-2022, and a finished vessel ready for the high seas by 2025.

It builds on the Oceanbird concept developed by maritime consultancy Wallenius Marine. Wallenius Wilhelmsen will take the concept forward by applying its knowledge from the RoRo business, and conduct a comprehensive viability evaluation.
