Wallenius Wilhelmsen: Signing of shipbuilding contracts and securing four new options


Wallenius Wilhelmsen has signed the shipbuilding contracts for the recently declared options for four 9,300 CEU vessels at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard Co., Ltd.  In connection with the contract signing, Wallenius Wilhelmsen has been awarded four additional options at the shipyard. The new optional vessels have earlier delivery slots compared to the options already held, providing further flexibility in delivery timing. Consequently, Wallenius Wilhelmsen now has firm contracts for eight new vessels with delivery from mid-2026 onwards, and eight optional vessels. The company has not made any decision regarding whether to declare any additional optional vessels, and the four new options do not necessarily represent an increased ambition for the current newbuilding programme.
