Grimaldi’s ECO SAVONA Launched at Nanjing Jinling Shipyard

Nanjing Jinling Shipyard has just successfully launched the fourth of G5GG (Grimaldi Green 5th Generation) ro-ro vessels ordered by Grimaldi Group.

ECO SAVONA is the name of the last newbuilding which touched the sea, while the previous three units were called ECO BARCELONA, ECO VALENCIA and ECO LIVORNO.

The first unit, ECO VALENCIA, part of a series of 12 newbuildings (of which 3 are for Finnlines), is expected to be delivered in the coming weeks and will start operating on the motorways of the seas between Italy and Spain linking Livorno, Savona, Barcelona and Valencia ports.

The new vessels have a length of 238m, a beam of 34m and a gross tonnage of 64,000.

They will be able to transport over 7,800 lane meters of roro freight. The design of the newbuilds was developed by the Technical and Energy Saving Department of the Grimaldi Group together with Knud E. Hansen in close cooperation with the shipyard.
