Italy’s Grimaldi Group has added five pure car/truck carriers to its orderbook at China Merchants Heavy Industry Jiangsu (CMHI-Jiangsu), also known as CMHI-Haimen — lifting its tally of PCTCs on order at the shipyard to 10.

The 9,000-ceu newbuildings were optional vessels that the company held after penning five vessels at the yard in October.

The PCTCs will be equipped with mega-lithium batteries, scrubbers, solar panels and ground connections to drive zero emission status when in port.
