This week, we interview Roger Strevens, VP Global Sustainability at Wallenius Wilhelmsen, a market leader in RoRo shipping and vehicle logistics.
Headquartered in Oslo, with 9,500 employees in 29 countries, Wallenius Wilhelmsen operates a fleet of 120 modern RoRos on a global trade network, with a 3 billion USD revenue in 2020.
In this episode, Roger introduces our listeners to Orcelle Wind, a concept vessel that will be powered primarily by wind and reduce emissions by up to 90% in comparison to other new-build ships.
Roger details the design and feasibility assessment currently taking place: Orcelle Wind, a full size vessel, can carry 7,000 cars and will be biggest sailing vessel ever built if Wallenius Wilhelmsen finds a way to construct it.
Roger also provides a deep dive into the uncertainties facing the shipping industry regarding decarbonization. He highlights the huge opportunity to grow market share for the leaders who prioritize and actualize zero emission vessels. It sounds impossible on today's standards, but it’s not so far away.
