Höegh Autoliners Names 4th Post-Panamax

Norwegian RoRo shipping company Höegh Autoliners has named the fourth vessel in its New Horizon class series, Höegh Trapper, at a naming ceremony at Xiamen Shipbuilding Industries in China.

Höegh Trapper is the fourth in a series of six Post-Panamax vessels under the abovementioned design that Höegh Autoliners will take delivery of within this year.

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

Featuring a length of 199.9 meters and a width of 36.5 meters, the 20,766 dwt vessel has a gross tonnage of 77,000 Mt.

Höegh Trapper will begin its maiden voyage from East Asia to Europe in June, and will thereafter sail from Europe back to East Asia via Africa and Oceania.

Back in January this year, Höegh named the third vessel from the same series, Höegh Tracer, that was subsequently delivered in March.
