- Following a public tender launched by the Italian transport ministry earlier this year, Grimaldi Euromed, company controlled by Grimaldi Group, emerged as the only bidder and so is very likely to prolong the subsidised maritime link on the route Civitavecchia – Arbatax – Cagliari.
- Deadline for submitting offers was 5 May 2023 and binding price stood at EUR 42.4 million.
- Grimaldi offered EUR 26.9 million for the next cycle of maritime continuity between the Italian mainland and Sardinia set to last three years.
- The ro-pax vessel to be deployed on the line will be most likely the ferry CORFU.
