The 1992-built ConRo vessel M/V Repubblica di Roma, owned by the Grimaldi Group caught fire last week and its current status is unknown this morning. These images were sent to us from an anonymous Grimaldi employee showing smoke billowing from the ship’s superstructure.
All crew are safely ashore according to our source.
The ship is currently offshore Togo in the Gulf of Guinea and has a cargo capacity of 2,200 cars and 890 TEU.
We have reached out to the shipowner for comment on this incident and will update when new information is available.
