Grimaldi Group returned to the European Investment Bank, asking for €70m, on a total cost of €150m, for a project involving “the retrofitting of SOx exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers) to 10 ro-pax ferries, 17 conro vessels, 11 ro-ro vessels and 6 vehicle carriers” for a ‘total of 44 vessels’, the Luxembourg-lender reports. The request is ‘under appraisal’.

As for the objectives of Grimaldi’s plan, EIB explains that “the aim is to ensure that the promoter’s vessels comply with IMO, International Labour Organisation (ILO) and EU regulations governing the cleaning of exhaust gas emissions. The vessels concerned by this project will be outfitted with wet exhaust gas cleaning systems designed to remove harmful sulphur and exhaust particulates from the vessels engine emissions. The resulting emissions will meet future, more stringent international regulations and as such the project will contribute to a significant improvement of the environmental performance of the fleet”.

Grimaldi Group controlled Finnlines also received €50m from the EIB for installing 22 scrubbers on its fleet of ferries.
