On 30 May 2022, the port of Valletta hosted the christening ceremony of the ECO MALTA, the latest ro-ro vessel delivered to the Grimaldi Group in March. This is the sixth of 12 hybrid ships belonging to the innovative GG5G (Grimaldi Green 5th Generation) class.
ECO MALTA has joined her sister vessel ECO CATANIA on the connections between Ravenna, Brindisi, Catania and between Genoa and Malta.
“Being here in Malta today for this special occasion, or to christen the largest and most sustainable ship in the world, is a source of great pride for us” said Eugenio Grimaldi, executive director of the Grimaldi Group. “We have been present in Malta for more than sixty years and this event marks an important milestone for the maritime and transport industry locally, as well as throughout the Mediterranean”.
