525 HERO

The MV Titus is a High Efficiency RoRo (HERO) class vessel designed to reduce energy consumption and emissions per tonne/kilometer cargo transported. The advanced hull is tailored for efficient operations in a wide range of sea conditions, and dramatically improves the cargo to ballast ratio. The engine has been tuned for low-load operation to reduce the specific fuel consumption in normal operation and she has an efficient bunker system that can operate on different bunker qualities. The cargo hold, with its two-pillar design and electrically hoistable deck panels, allows for flexible operations and is optimized to transport breakbulk, rolling equipment and cars.

The second vessel in the series is expected to enter service later this year and two are scheduled for delivery in 2019. WW Ocean already has four vessels of the HERO design in operation, which have proven their ability to deliver from an operational and environmental perspective.
