Waste Management

Ships and offshore platforms are valuable sources of secondary metals and other used elements and machinery, but these materials also contain hazardous substances that are necessary for the proper operation of the equipment or that have accumulated over years of use.

Asbestos, ozone-depleting substances in cooling systems, wall-bound mercury in tanks and pipes; it goes without saying that these materials must be handled with constant care for the environment and the people working on site. 

With our Ship Recycling Waste  methodology, we track and record all hazardous substances and waste flows to final disposal, providing tangible evidence of environmentally sound waste management and regulatory compliance.

Oil Tankers

The dismantling and recycling of oil tankers is accompanied by a specialist approach in which specific waste management methods developed by Wreckdock are used to prevent danger to people and the environment.

Cargo Carriers

Cargo Ships are sectionally dismantled by Wreckdock in its own dry dock in accordance with strict international regulations for people and the environment.

Gas Tankers

LPG/LNG Tankers are specific ships with extreme safety requirements for dismantling. Wreckdock focuses specifically on specialist dismantling of these vessels in a specific dry dock developed for LPG/LNG Tankers.

Cruise Ships

Cruise ships, like LPG/LNG Tankers, are a specific specialization and are therefore dismantled by Wreckdock and recycled in their own dry dock up to 500 meters long.
