Grimaldi Group has taken delivery of the second multipurpose ro-ro vessel from its G5-class series, Great Lagos, at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in Ulsan, South Korea.
The vessel, measuring 250 m long and with a deadweight of 45,684 tonnes, will soon be deployed on Grimaldi’s services between Northern Europe and West Africa.
The G5-class ships are able to transport 4,700 linear metres of rolling freight, 2,500 ceu and 2,000 teu. Compared to the previous G4-class, the new vessels have the same capacity for rolling freight while doubling its container capacity.
The first ship in the series of six ro-ro units commissioned from the shipyard, Great Antwerp, was delivered earlier this year, as HLPFI reported here. The other four G5-class units will be delivered between 2023 and 2024 and will also operate on the same Northern Europe-West Africa routes.
