The Aurora Class
The Aurora Class will be the largest and most environmentally friendly car carrier in the industry and the first in the PCTC segment to receive DNV’s ammonia and methanol-ready notations.
Höegh Autoliners is further accelerating its decarbonization efforts by building the most environmentally friendly car carrier ever built. The launch of the design of the Aurora class vessels and the signing of contracts for the delivery of the first eight Auroras by the second half of 2026, two every six months starting from H2 of 2024, is another decisive step on Höegh Autoliner's path to zero. The Auroras will be the first in the PCTC segment to receive DNV’s ammonia and methanol-ready notations with the main engine provided by MAN and bridge system supplied by Kongsberg Maritime.
