Mr. Henning Gramann, CEO at GSR Services GmbH, talks about latest developments concerning ship breaking, highlighting that proper planning and assistance by experts is required for the preparation of an Inventory of Hazardous Material (IHM), as required by HKC and EU-SRR.
Mr. Henning Gramann, CEO at GSR Services, talks about an interesting project in which his team was involved with the aim to change the image of beaching in India substantially. In particular, Mr Gramann describes the process, from the beginning till the end, toward responsible ship recycling of the HMNZS Endeavour in Alang shipyard in compliance with Hong Kong Convention, EU-Ship Recycling Regulation and Basel Convention. As explained, proper planning and assistance by experts to develop all necessary documents (such as IHM Part I and II) are of outmost importance for conducting responsible recycling.
Henning Gramann, IHMA, talks about best practices regarding the Inventory of Hazardous Materials. Mr. Gramann notes that the new legal requirements for Recycling of Ships have become a pressing issue for all ships, no matter if brand new or very old. A key requirement all for EU-registered and all EU-visiting ships above 500GT is to have a certified IHM onboard until end of 2020.
Mr. Henning Gramann, CEO, GSR- Services has responded to GREEN4SEA questions providing his insight for the ship recycling sector. He said that the preparation of IHM is a significant challenge for 2017 and stressed the need for supporting the shipping industry in the integration of IHM and ship recycling planning in daily routine, otherwise implementation of the new legal requirements will be too ‘burdensome’.
