Wan Hai 165: From Approval to Action – EEC and ASRY's Ship Recycling in Motion. Paving the Way for a Greener Future in the Shipping Industry.
Published: 08-05-2023

We started our operations today on the Wan Hai 165 after receiving approval from the Supreme Council of Environment (SCE). This news comes after a lengthy process of obtaining the necessary permits and approvals and it marks a significant milestone in our company's efforts to safely and efficiently dispose of the vessel.



The Wan Hai 165 will undergo a rigorous process of removal of any residual hazardous material that may be remaining on board for its safe and proper disposal. The vessel will be placed in a floating dry dock, where it will undergo further processing to reduce its weight. The accommodation block will be removed layer by layer, and the ship will be cut into blocks of up to 25 tons for transportation to the secondary and tertiary cutting zones. 
Our dedication and expertise in ship recycling are critical to the successful completion of this operation. The team will carry out the process with the utmost care and attention, ensuring that it is safe and efficient while minimizing the impact on the environment.



This operation is an essential step in promoting sustainable practices in the shipping industry and protecting our oceans. It is a testament to the commitment of EEC and ASRY to responsible and environmentally friendly ship recycling practices.
