Norwegian shipowners approve two Alang yards

The Norwegian Shipowners' Association maintains its ban on beaching. However, two Indian shipbreakers in Alang, cleared by classification bureau ClassNK, meet the association's requirements.

The Norwegian shipowners have approved two Indian shipbreaking facilities in Alang that have previously been linked to beaching.

CEO of the Norwegian Shipowners' Association, Sturla Henriksen, stresses to ShippingWatch that the association recommends its members to not use beaching, as part of its policy to ensure responsible shipbreaking. The two facilities have been approved because they comply with the Hong Kong convention, and this convention has also served as the Norwegian shipowners' reference in terms of determining what constitutes responsible shipbreaking.
