Hoegh Autoliners has firmed up orders for up to 12 zero-carbon pure car/truck carriers (PCTCs) at China Merchants Heavy Industry (Jiangsu) in China.

The Oslo-listed shipowner said the order is for four firm PCTCs plus options for up to eight sister vessels. No financial terms were disclosed.

Hoegh Autoliners signed a letter of intent for the vessels, which will be multi-fuel and ammonia ready, in early October 2021.
