Höegh Autoliners completes its first carbon neutral voyage
Höegh Autoliners is working closely with customers and partners in reducing its carbon footprint and supporting customers in decarbonising their logistics supply chain. Using advanced biofuels to run existing fleets has a strong potential to significantly reduce emissions today, while new ship technologies evolve.
Andreas Enger, CEO at Höegh Autoliners said:
GoodFuels’ biofuel was chosen for the test run as it’s virtually free of sulphur oxides and reduces the vessel’s carbon emissions by up to 90%. The remaining emissions generated were offset through certificates from Gold Standard, to make the voyage truly carbon neutral.
Isabel Welten, Chief Commercial Officer at GoodFuels, says:
Höegh Autoliners operates some of the greenest and largest PCTC vessels in the world: The New Horizon series can transport up to 8500 car equivalent units and were designed to minimise its impact on the environment. The vessels are equipped with the latest fuel-saving technologies, reducing CO2 emissions per car equivalent unit by 50% compared with standard car carriers.
