Höegh Autoliners and Norwegian green energy provider, North Ammonia, have announced a partnership for the supply, distribution, delivery and consumption of green ammonia, a carbon-free fuel produced using renewable energy.

The partnership will enable Höegh Autoliners to meet the commitment of powering at least 5% of deep-sea operations with green ammonia by 2030 (part of Höegh Autoliners' First Movers Coalition pledge) and the company's aim of consuming at least 100 000 tpy of green ammonia within their fleet.

Partnering with North Ammonia marks yet another sustainability milestone for Höegh Autoliners and is an important step on our path to zero. The green ammonia is meant for the company's ammonia-ready, dual-fuel Aurora class vessels – the world’s largest and most environmentally-friendly Pure Car, Truck Carriers ever built. As part of the company's ambitious newbuilding programme, eight Auroras have been ordered – expecting the delivery of two every six months starting from 2H24.

Designed to carry up to 9100 cars, the Auroras are designed for future cargo as the vessels’ strengthened decks and enhanced internal ramp systems enable electric vehicles on all decks and provide more flexibility for heavier project cargo. Securing the supply and delivery of green ammonia from North Ammonia’s planned production facility in Arendal in southern Norway will help us source green ammonia safely, efficiently, and cost-competitively as a first mover and industry frontrunner sailing for sustainability in the maritime sector.
