Grimaldi inks six more Jinling roros

Naples-based Grimaldi Group has just exercised the options for a further six roro ships with Jinling shipyard which are worth some $400m according to several sources familiar with the matter.

The Italian shipping company was also discussing the same order with Xiamen shipyard in China but in the end chose the same shipyard which already obtained the previous contract for the first six units.

The relation between Grimaldi and Jinling is therefore becoming more and more close since the same Chinese shipbuilder recently built three car carriers with a further four currently under construction with delivery scheduled within 12 months.
