From the Scandinavian Shipping Gazette, 2 June 2008:
DFDS Tor Line has chartered the new ro/ro vessel Tor Hafnia. The vessel is the second of the four Chinese built ro/ros, which are on time charter from Norbulk Shipping in Glasgow (set up with capital from Scandinavia). The Tor Hafnia, which is the latin name for Copenhagen, will be deployed on the Anglo South service by DFDS Tor Line. This is the service running from Göteborg to Tilbury on the River Thames. The Tor Hafnia is hull no. 0403 from Jinling Shipyard in Nanjing, China. The 11,322 DWT vessel has a capacity of 3,455 lane metres, which is equivalent to 230 trailers. The Tor Hafnia is powered by a double MAN L48/60 plant developing some 9,450 kW for a service speed of 20 knots with a consumption of 75 tons of heavy fuel per day. Like her sister the Tor Corona, the Tor Hafnia is registered in London and flies the British flag.
