Grimaldi Group has taken delivery of the third multipurpose ConRo vessel from the Hyundai Mipo shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea. It is the third G5 class vessel the company has acquired and it is named Great Tema. 

According to the company, the Great Tema will be dipped into the Northern Europe-West Africa trade lane. Commenting on the delivery, Grimaldi Group president, Gianluca Grimaldi, said, “The addition of vessels such as the Great Tema to the fleet and its operation brings us ever closer to the great and priority goal of more sustainable transport. In fact, for years we have clearly and concretely directed our investments in this direction: to meet the needs of our customers while continuing to reduce the impact of maritime transport on the environment.”

From February 2024, the Great Tema will operate regular scheduled services on the Northern Europe-West Africa route. Like her sister ships Great Antwerp and Great Lagos, which were delivered to the Grimaldi Group in April and August respectively this year, she will call at the ports of Amsterdam, Hamburg, Tilbury, Casablanca, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Freetown, Cotonou, Lagos, Tema, Takoradi, Abidjan and San Pedro.

With a length of 250 metres, a width of 38 metres and a carrying capacity of 45,684 tonnes, the new G5 class can carry 4,700 linear metres of rolling cargo, 2,500 CEU and 2,000 TEU.
