Norway-headquartered Höegh Autoliners is considering a potential listing as part of its plan to build 12 Aurora-class multi-fuel and ammonia-ready vessels.

“The recent launch of the multi-fuel Aurora-class design demonstrates how we can strengthen our leading position in decarbonisation and cargo efficiency. These vessels will be the largest and greenest PCTCs to be built and lead the way towards a net-zero emissions future for our industry,” said Leif O Høegh, the company’s chair.

The Aurora-class has DNV’s ammonia ready notation, with the first vessel lined up for delivery in 2024. ABG Sundal Collier and DNB Markets have been engaged to assist in the process of a potential listing, it added.
