WWL M/V Tijuca maiden call at Port of Tacoma

By: | at 07:00 PM | Channel(s): Liner Shipping  

Recently the Wallenius Wilhelmsen M/V Tijuca made its maiden call at the Port of Tacoma. With a total length of just over 760 feet (231.6 meters) and a capacity of 7,500 autos, the Tijuca is among the largest in the Wallenius Wilhelmsen fleet.

The vessel was delivered to Wallenius Wilhelmsen from the Daewoo Shipyard in South Korea on Dec. 19, 2008. It took on cargo in Japan before making its maiden voyage across the Pacific to its first North American discharge in Tacoma (assorted construction machinery and other breakbulk cargoes).
