Höegh Autoliners joins Copenhagen decarbonisation hub

Höegh Autoliners has announced it has joined the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping as a Mission Ambassador.

In a social media post published today (28 June), Oslo-listed Höegh Autoliners said the partnership with the Copenhagen-based research centre would enable the company to ‘collaborate with like-minded organisations’, and leverage its ‘unique ability to develop and implement breakthrough decarbonisation projects.’

Commenting on the partnership, Lise Duetoft, Chief Strategy and Analytics Officer, Höegh Autoliners, said: ‘Together with the Center, we seek to accelerate both our and the maritime industry’s path to reaching zero. We look forward to both contributing and leveraging the shared knowledge and experience of the Center’s partners.’

As previously reported, Hoegh Autoliners has ordered eight LNG-fuelled car carriers, which will be ammonia- and methanol-ready, and has an option for an additional four vessels. Last month, the company entered into a partnership with Norwegian North Ammonia for the supply and use of green ammonia.
