Hong Kong-based ship building consulting firm SeaQuest Marine Project Management on Thursday (23 April) said it has been entrusted with a supervising role in the construction of three Green 5th Generation zero emission newbuild Ro-Ro vessels for Finnlines at China Merchants Group’s Nanjing Jinling Shipyard.
Finnlines Plc, a Finnish shipping company and part of the Grimaldi Group, placed an order for the three Hybrid Ro-Ro Ultra-Large Green vessels at Jinling Shipyard back in 2018, it said.
SeaQuest elaborated the vessels, whose basic design was developed by Danish ship designer Knud E. Hansen, are based on the same hull as the Grimaldi Green 5th Generation (GG5G) vessels under construction at the same yard (238m length, 34m beam), but customised to the needs of Finnlines allowing for heavy cargo and operation in cold climates with the highest Finnish/Swedish ice class 1A Super.
The aim for the design is to be flexible enough for all types of Ro-Ro cargoes, with a capacity of 5,800 lane meters and more than 5,000 square meters of vehicle decks, noted the company.
