MITSUBISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES - Ship & Ocean
TØNSBERG is the world’s largest RO/RO ship, built by MHI Group for the Wilhelmsen Group, a Norwegian shipping company, and the Wallenius Group, a Swedish shipping company.
TØNSBERG was the first of a four-ship order from the clients, completed at the Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works in March 2011. The ship was awarded the ”Ship of the Year 2011” award sponsored by the Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers, for its high transportation efficiency and excellent environmental performance. Since winning the first Ship of the Year award for our Crystal Harmony cruise ship in 1990, MHI Group has won the award numerous times for its merchant ships, with TØNSBERG being the sixth time.
