Grimaldi Group has continued the expansion of its multipurpose RoRo fleet with the latest addition, the Great Abidjan. The vessel belongs to the innovative G5 class, and it has been delivered from the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea. 

The Great Abidjan, a G5-class ship, has been designed after carefully studying the needs of the Group and its customers. With a length of 250 metres, a beam of 38 metres, and a deadweight of 45,684 tonnes, this ship has an innovative and completely customized internal configuration that enables it to transport 4,700 linear metres of rolling freight, 2,500 CEU (Car Equivalent Units), and 2,000 TEU (Twenty Foot Equivalent Units). The new G5-class ships have a container capacity that is double that of the previous G4-class vessels, while their capacity for rolling freight remains the same.

The Great Abidjan boasts a high loading capacity. Additionally, the vessel is equipped with cutting-edge technological solutions that aim to improve energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact. As a result, the ship can reduce CO2 emissions per tonne transported by up to 43 per cent compared to other Grimaldi con-ro multipurpose ships.

“The Great Abidjan is the outcome of a long and fruitful co-operation with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard which may continue in the future for the renewal of our existing fleet”, stated Diego Pacella, President of Grimaldi Deep Sea S.p.A. “Named after a port that has been regularly included in the routes served by our Group for years, the vessel will be deployed, like her three sister vessels already in operation, on our deepsea connections between Northern Europe and West Africa.”
