MacGregor secures major order for Höegh Autoliners PCTCs

MacGregor, a division of Cargotec, has secured a significant order to provide comprehensive RoRo (Roll-on/Roll-off) equipment for an additional four Aurora class Pure Car and Truck Carriers (PCTCs) by Höegh Autoliners.

These vessels, designed to accommodate multi-fuel and zero-carbon technologies, will expand Höegh Autoliners' newbuilding programme for the Aurora class to a total of twelve ships, all to be constructed by China Merchant Heavy Industries (Jiangsu).

This order has been recorded in Cargotec's order intake for the fourth quarter of 2023, with the scheduled delivery of the vessels spanning from the second quarter of 2026 to the first half of 2027.

The Aurora class represents the future of the PCTC industry, boasting the capacity to transport up to 9,100 cars and claiming the title of the world's largest and most environmentally friendly car carrier MacGregor.

Notably, these vessels will be equipped with DNV's ammonia and methanol-ready notations, aligning with the industry's growing focus on sustainable and alternative fuel solutions.

"Höegh Autoliners has a clear commitment towards a more sustainable future and we are pleased that they have chosen to continue collaborating with us moving towards safer, more efficient and eco-efficient shipping," stated Magnus Sjöberg, senior vice president of Merchant Solutions at MacGregor.

MacGregor's involvement in this project encompasses the entire spectrum of RoRo equipment, including the design, supply, and installation support for a large stern quarter ramp, a door, a side ramp and door, internal ramp systems, and liftable car decks across all four vessels.

"We are very pleased to be continuing our partnership with MacGregor. Our Aurora newbuilding program is a definitive step in our commitment to a net zero emissions future by 2040, and MacGregor’s world-leading technology and expertise will benefit our operations and ensure that the Aurora vessels are built to the highest standards. It is our ambition to be the preferred green partner in deep sea shipping, and we are committed to building a more sustainable future," added Andreas Enger, CEO of Höegh Autoliners.
