Höegh Tropicana delivered for Green Recycling
27 December 2013, Höegh Autoliners sold the Pure Car Truck Carrier Höegh Tropicana (built 1980) for recycling to Grieg Green which will provide services to ensure safe and environmentally friendly "green recycling" in China.
Höegh Autoliners has adopted a Ship Recycling Policy based on the intentions in the IMO recycling convention proposed in 2009 ensuring that a vessel is recycled in a safe and environmentally friendly way at a ship recycling yard which can document that certain standards will be met. Grieg Green was selected based on good experience from three earlier recycled car carriers from Höegh Autoliners.
"This is the 15th car carrier we have sold for green recycling and we are pleased that Grieg Green will supply services to safeguard safe and environmentally friendly recycling," says Ingar Skiaker, CEO of Höegh Autoliners. "Our concern for safety and the environment applies all the way through the vessel's life."
