Knud E. Hansen has designed the first generation of LNG-powered ultra-large RoRo vessels for the newly-established Swedish company Wallenius-SOL.

Up to four vessels have been ordered at Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore Ltd., China, for whom Knud E. Hansen will provide the engineering package for the construction and approval by classification and flag state authorities.

This is the 4th series of ultra-large RoRo vessels designed by the Danish consultancy since 2016, resulting in more than 20 of these vessels being built in the coming years.

During the design development, Knud E. Hansen has worked with Wallenius-SOL in order to optimize the design for the unique design criteria and operational requirements of Wallenius-SOL.

The 1A Super ice-classed vessels will have a length of abt. 242 m and a deadweight capacity of abt. 27,000 t making them largest in the class.

The vessels will be the first Mega RoRo vessels in the world powered by LNG-fuelled engines, thus reducing its total emissions and carbon footprint.

During port calls the vessels will run on green electricity from shore connections or LNG.
