WALLENIUS SOL will introduce weekly traffic to the Port of Skellefteå beginning October 2021.

What’s behind? An agreement between logistics company Scanlog and Northvolt.

Northvolt’s first battery gigafactory is being established in Skellefteå and serves as Northvolt’s primary site for manufacturing of active material, cell assembly and recycling.

Route: Zeebrugge-Antwerp-Kokkola-Skelleftehamn-Kemi-Oulu

In the initial stage, the chartered vessels Fiona Sea and Jutlandia Sea will be plying the route. At the end of the year, they will be replaced by WALLENIUS SOL’s newly built vessels, which will be the world’s biggest ice-rated, multi-fuel RoRo vessels.
