Norwegian based RoRo specialist Wallenius Wilhelmsen has taken delivery of the pure car truck carrier (PCTC) vessel “Porgy” (built 2009/6,400 ceu) following the declaration of a purchase option under the long-term charter-in agreement.

The assessed value of the vessel is above the strike price, but in line with previous transactions, no financial gains will be booked in connection with the purchases and the effect on the Profit and Loss accounts is expected to be immaterial, as Wallenius Wilhelmsen informs.

Furthermore, the company mentions that the purchase was financed with cash on hand.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen operates around 125 vessels servicing 15 trade routes to six continents, a global inland distribution network, 66 processing centers and eight marine terminals.

The company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, and the Wallenius Wilhelmsen group has 9,500 employees in 28 countries worldwide.
