Ship-breaking # 36

29 Jul 2014

Quarterly bulletin of information and analysis on ship demolition

From April 1st to June 30th 2014.

A huge market. 263 ships, 2 million tons of metal, 1 billion US$.

Of the 74 vessels whose shipowner is based in the European Union or in an EFTA state (European Free Trade Association) only 5 have been dismantled in Europe. Iceland scraps ships any which way.

Saint-Kitts-and-Nevis, Tuvalu, Comoros, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Moldova, Togo are the preferred flags chosen for the last voyage.

Towing operations of ships towards ship-breaking yards are a critical phase. The Lyubov Orlova and Canada are attributed a black mark whereas the Costa Concordia deserves a gold star.
