Knud E. Hansen designs for Grimaldi

Having worked on several ro-ro and ro-con projects around the world, the Knud E. Hansen design group has signed a contract with Nanjing Jinling Shipyard, China for the development of the basic design of various large ro-ro vessels, based on Grimaldi/ Knud E. Hansen designs.

The new vessels, the first of which is expected to be delivered in 2020, will measure 238m by 34m and have a gross tonnage of 64,000.

They will be able to transport over 7,800 lane metres of rolling units, equivalent to approximately 500 trailers.

The design has been developed by the Technical and Energy Saving Department of the Grimaldi Group with Knud E. Hansen, and in close cooperation with the shipyard.

The new ro-ros are known as the Grimaldi Green 5th Generation (GG5G).

The vessels will use electricity in port, through large lithium batteries, guaranteeing zero emissions while at berth.

The batteries will be recharged during navigation with the aid of 600m2 of solar panels.
