Wallenius Wilhelmsen gets greener

Wallenius Wilhelmsen has ordered 11 RoRo trucks and seven terminal tractors for 13 of its vessels.

The company said that it decided to opt for these machines because of their prominent environmental qualities, which is in accordance with corporate philosophy help ensure that its operations do not put a strain on the environment.

The Kalmar RoRo trucks have a 33-tonne lifting capacity and a rotating driver’s seat. An important safety feature is the fact that none of the machines can be run overloaded; if loaded beyond their maximum capacity they will be automatically switched off.
