The designs are based on the same hull as the Grimaldi Green fifth-generation ships. The three ships on order have been customised for operation in cold climates and to accommodate the transport of heavy cargoes.

The vessels, which are expected to be delivered from 2021, will have a length of 238 m, a beam of 34 m, and are designed to meet the highest Finnish/Swedish Ice Class 1A Super.

The ships will be able to cater for a wide variety of ro-ro cargoes with a capacity of 5,800 lane metres and more than 5,000 sq m of vehicle decks, said Knud E. Hansen.

The vessels will use electricity in port, courtesy of large lithium batteries, thus guaranteeing zero emissions whilst at berth. These batteries will be recharged during navigation, through shaft generators employing a peak shaving system.
