24 Apr 2018

The Grimaldi Group of Naples on April 18, 2018 held a ceremony to christen a scrubber equipped newbuild roll-on/roll-off vessel at Port Newark Auto Marine Terminal (FAPS) in the Port of NY-NJ.

The Pure Car & Truck Carrier Grande New York is a “highly performing ship from an environmental point of view", it says.

The vessel is fitted with an electronically controlled (Man Diesel & Turbo) main engine that allows compliance with regulations for reducing NOx emissions, while the installed scrubber reduces sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions.

Moreover, she is also equipped with a ballast water treatment unit for meeting future international regulations.

The ship is expected to be deployed on the Mediterranean-North America route. Second of a series of three sister units, the Grande New York has a length of 199,900 meters, a width of 32,26 meters, a gross tonnage of 63,000 metric tonnes (mt) and cruising speed of 19 knots.

The vessel can carry 6,700 CEU (Car Equivalent Units) or alternatively 4,000 linear meters of rolling freight and 2,500 CEU.

It is equipped with four hoistable decks and able to transport any type of rolling cargo (cars, vans, trucks, tractors, buses, excavators, etc.) up to 5.2 meters high. In addition, the vessel has two access ramps, a side ramp and a quarter stern ramp, the latter allowing the loading of freight units with a weight of up to 150 mt.
