Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ro-Ro MV Themis

First time for me to see this Ro-Ro rolling by ...

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ro-Ro Northbound July 11, 2020
Puget Sound, near Seattle, Washington

The vessel spotted is MV Themis, owned and operated by Wallenius Wihlelmsen of Norway. The ship is enroute to Tokyo, Japan. After spotting the Themis on July 11, I checked its position on morning of the 12th via MarineTraffic ...

The Themis is on its way to Yokohama, Japan from Tacoma, Washington, USA
After leaving Tacoma on July 11 its ETA Yokohama is July 27.
It fascinates me the voyage will take 16 days.

Spotting the Ro-Ro (Roll-on Roll-off Vehicle Carrier) on July 11 led to  some interesting information and photos on WW's website. The following images are screenshots from their WEBSITE.

Close look at the Themis
Read about MV Themis winning Panama Canal Environmental Award 2019 HERE.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen, headquartered in Oslo, Norway, is a transporter of various kinds of vehicles and associated logistics.

A list of Wallenius Wilhelmsen's vessels can be found HERE. I hope to see more of them in the future.


  1. Hello, that is an impressive ship. I like your photo of the ship! Take care! Enjoy your day and have a great new week!

  2. These are HUGE ships.
    Interesting to see MV Themis route and information.

    All the best Jan

  3. So neat to be able to see these ships through a blog posting. Your pictures are clear and very cool! :-)

  4. I’ve followed the progress of some cargo valleys which leave port in Summerside too. It is interesting!

  5. So someone wants a specialized shop for anything...just go out and build it.

  6. Huge Ships- Wow! That certainly is a load of John Deere Tractors- most interesting John.

  7. Seems monstrous! You wonder how it floats!
    Grace be with you

  8. We see a lot of huge boats come into harbor here for repairs and renovations. Peterson Boatyard in Sturgeon Bay, WI. They are amazing to see up close.
    Great post, John. Hope you have a wonderful week. Diana
