Norwegian/Swedish ro-ro shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen will reactivate the last three of its vessels that were placed in cold layup in the spring of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, citing rising rates and demand.
“Reactivation will take place in Q3, and the intention is that reactivated vessels will replace capacity sourced through short-term charters,” Wallenius Wilhelmsen said.
Earlier this year Wallenius Wilhelmsen decided to reactivate up to 12 of the 15 vessels placed in layup last spring.
“Nine of these vessels have already re-entered service, while three are in the process of being reactivated and are due to start sailing again during Q2.
