Andreas Enger, CEO of Hoegh Autoliners, commented: “The Höegh Tracer has served us well and sailed the Oceans transporting our customers’ important cargo since she was built in 2016. As one of six Horizon class vessels in our fleet, she is one of the largest and most environmentally friendly PCTC out there and therefore very important for our ambitious path to a zero emissions future by 2040. Exercising the option for Höegh Tracer reinforces our commitment to a sustainable future for deep sea shipping and demonstrates our commitment to continue to manage our capacity cost. “
