North Ammonia and Höegh Autoliners partner for green ammonia

North Ammonia and shipping company Höegh Autoliners have announced an agreement for the supply, distribution, delivery, and consumption of green ammonia.

The partnership will enable Höegh Autoliners to meet its commitment to power at least 5% of its deep-sea operation with green ammonia by 2030 and their aim of consuming at least 100,000 tonnes of green ammonia within its fleet by that same year.

CEO of North Ammonia, Vidar Lundberg says: ‘We are proud to support Höegh Autoliners’ ambitious sustainability initiative. In the maritime energy transition, we are dependent on first movers such as Höegh and this partnership demonstrates the growing demand for green ammonia in deep-sea shipping. As an infrastructure developer, we hope that this collaboration will inspire other companies in the industry to develop and order environmentally friendly vessels.’

‘We are proud to partner with an ambitious Norwegian green ammonia supplier to transition towards a more sustainable future. This collaboration will not only reduce our environmental impact and carbon footprint. It will also set a new standard for the industry as a whole and assist our partners and customers in decarbonizing their supply chain,’ adds Höegh Autoliners’ CEO, Andreas Enger.

The agreement with Höegh Autoliners is an important milestone for North Ammonia and will support the continued development of North Ammonia’s first project, located at the Port of Arendal, in Eydehavn, southern Norway.
