Höegh Names Newest Post Panamax PCTC

Norwegian provider of RoRo transportation services Höegh Autoliners has named its New Horizon class vessel Höegh Tracer at Xiamen Shipbuilding Industries in China.

Höegh Tracer is the third in a series of six Post Panamax vessels under the New Horizon design that Höegh Autoliners will take delivery of within this year.

Featuring a deck space of 71,400 square meters and a carrying capacity of 8,500 car equivalent units, the vessel is one of the world’s largest Pure Car and Truck Carriers (PCTC), Höegh said.

“The first two New Horizon vessels, Höegh Target and Höegh Trigger are already a valuable addition to our fleet. With our focus on customer satisfaction, the added flexibility these vessels provide, enable us to offer an enhanced service offering to our customers,” Steinar Løvdal, Head of Capacity Management in Höegh Autoliners said.

Höegh Tracer has a higher door opening than Höegh Autoliners’ current vessels, enabling cargo up to 6.5 metres high and 12 metres wide to be loaded.

Extra ramp strength allows for cargo weighing up to 375 tonnes to be loaded over the stern ramp and 22 tonnes over the side ramp.

The vessel will begin its maiden voyage from East Asia to Europe in March, and will thereafter sail from Europe back to East Asia via Africa and Oceania.
