Norway’s car carrier owner and operator Höegh Autoliners has sold its 1988-built Pure Car and Truck Carrier MV Höegh Triton for recycling, the company said.

As informed, the vessel will be recycled at Jiang Men City Zhong Xin Shipbreaking & Steel Co. in China, under supervision by Grieg Green.

This is the 17th car carrier we have sold for green recycling and we are pleased that Grieg Green will supply services to safeguard safe and environmentally friendly recycling of the vessel,” says Steinar Løvdal, Chief Operating Officer Deep Sea.

The ship is the second old-timer to be sold by the company since the beginning of the year. Namely, on January 24, the vessel City of Mumbai (built 1987) was also sold for recycling in China.

This is the second of two vessels that Sinor Lines, a joint venture between Höegh Autoliners and CSC RoRo, has run in their services in South East Asia and that was sold for green recycling. The first of two, Höegh Chennai was sold for demolition in December 2016.

The two vessels were also recycled at the Jiang Men City Zhong Xin Shipbreaking & Steel, under supervision by Grieg Green.

Höegh Autoliners has fifty car carriers in its fleet, based on the company’s website data.
