The International Shipbreaking Show #51

An almost dead calm for the beginning of the year but still 222 ships scrapped, or a 34 km-long convoy. Tankers are in the lead. They are heading younger and younger for the demolition beaches especially double hull ships. The Amba Bhavanee demolished in Alang was 15 years old.

In tonnage, Bangladesh is sweeping the board with the temporary ban of oil tankers in Pakistan. China continues being off-side

27% of the ships scrapped belonged to European or EFTA shipowners.
Of 222 ships, only 6% were scrapped in Europe.

Goodbye Deborah

26 Mar 2018

Goodbye Deborah

The bow of the Belgian trawler bears the traces of the ramming for which she is responsible. Deborah cut like a blade the left side of the Hav Britannica. The 4 hold hatches went adrift, several tons of fuel too. From the very first moment, under French jurisdiction waters were at risk. At the time, the regional and professional press unanimously relying on official sources wrote that it was too late for a towing of the overturned wreck of the Maltese cargo ship.

The horizon and the D-Day beaches threatened by an industrial area

The horizon and the D-Day beaches threatened by an industrial area

The maritime industrial area will cover 50 km2 and will be spiked with 75 monsters, iron and non recyclable composite made and 150 m in wingspan. They will peak 180 m above sea level. The seabed will be drilled by underpinning stakes. The marine sediments will be occupied by a mess of electrical wires. Each machine will weigh at least 1500 tonnes. No wind turbine of this type and power – 6 MW – has ever proved in real conditions its supporting capacity and productivity.

These outrageous projects of construction of wind turbine parks off Noirmoutier, Saint-Nazaire, Saint-Brieuc, D-Day beaches, Fécamp and Le Tréport are promoted and operated by Alstom, Areva and EDF, the very same players which have imposed the nuclear miracle upon France. Caution is the order of the day.
