Höegh Trapeze delivered for Green Recycling
July 5, 2013, Pure Car Truck Carrier Höegh Trapeze (built 1983) was delivered to safe and environmentally friendly “green recycling” in China.
This is the 13th car carrier sold for green recycling since Höegh Autoliners started a policy in 2009 for green recycling of car carriers reaching the commercial end of their lives. Grieg Green was selected as buyer, based on good experience from two recently recycled car carriers acquired from Höegh Autoliners.
Grieg Green will resell the vessel to the recycling yard Jiangmen Zhong Xin Shipreaking Steel and Iron Co. in China. Grieg Green will in addition supply services to ensure the recycling is carried out to the best standards.
Höegh Autoliners has adopted a Ship Recycling Policy based on the intentions in the IMO recycling convention proposed in 2009. It ensures that a vessel is recycled in a safe and environmentally friendly way at a ship breaking yards which can document that certain standards will be met.
