HÖEGH Autoliners and Varo Energy have joined together in a strategic partnership to advance maritime decarbonisation.

The collaboration focuses on supplying 100% advanced biofuels for deep-sea transportation from Europe.

Varo CEO Dev Sanyal said: “I am delighted that Varo will be collaborating with Höegh to forge innovative solutions, share insights, and drive sustainable progress, contributing to the ambitions set by the International Maritime Organization to reduce the carbon intensity of emissions from shipping by at least 40% by 2030, and 70% by 2050, compared with 2008 levels.

“Together, we aim to help decarbonise deep-sea shipping, leveraging the potential of biofuels and ensuring a more sustainable future for our customers.”

Höegh CEO Andreas Enger said the partnership is a significant step forward for his company’s commitment to carbon-neutral deep-sea shipping.

“We are pleased to provide our customers with greener deep-sea transportation solutions as a step toward more environmentally responsible shipping,” he said.
