Spotted: Höegh Tracer Visits APM Terminals Pipavav

Höegh Tracer, a pure car truck carrier (PCTC) operated by Norwegian shipping company Höegh Autoliners, arrived at APM Terminals Pipavav on February 28, becoming the largest ship of its kind to ever call an Indian port.

Built by Chinese shipbuilder Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry, the Post-Panamax vessel was delivered to its owner, Oslo-listed Ocean Yield ASA, in March 2016.

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 PCTCs.

The 75,717 gross ton PCTC has a length of 199.9 meters and a width of 36.5 meters.

Höegh Tracer loaded 1,700 cars for export delivery at Port Pipavav, which is located 152 nautical miles from Nhava Sheva in Mumbai.

APM Terminals Pipavav, in partnership with NYK Auto Logistics (India), operates the roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) terminal, which has a capacity of 250,000 vehicles annually.
