8 September 2022, Wallenius SOL’s new record-breaking vessel BOTNIA ENABLER was christened in the Port of Skellefteå.

BOTNIA ENABLER is not only the world’s biggest ice-rated ConRo vessel with multi-fuel operation, but also the biggest ship that has ever called at the Port of Skellefteå. It was with much due pomp and ceremony that invited guests, politicians and representatives of trade and industry bore witness to the ship’s godmother Ulla Löfven when she according to tradition broke a bottle of champagne against the ship’s 242 metre long hull.

BOTNIA ENABLER will share the Zeebrugge-Antwerp-Kokkola-Oulu-Kemi-Skellefteå-Travemünde route with her sister ship, BALTIC ENABLER. This means weekly calls with a total capacity of 6,442 lane metres (962 TEU).
