Leviathan announced a cooperation with German Naval Yards on facilitating green and sustainable ship recycling.
he companies have signed a Letter of Intent to join their forces to be the powerhouse of European green ship recycling. This cooperation will make the first sustainable and almost emission free ship recycling world-wide possible by using cold water cutting technology.
First ships are expected to be accepted for green recycling in Kiel soon.
The initial proof of concept was validated on the first recycling project. Leviathan’s robot-assisted cold water cutting technology is further developed and enhanced.
After this success, scale-up and recycling according to EU-Reg. 1257 (SRR) and Hong-Kong Convention are the next steps.
Now our vision of automated, people- and environmental-friendly ship recycling is becoming a reality. At the same time, we are securing important steel as a raw material for European steel production, assisting European steelmakers to reduce their carbon footprint
Simeon Hiertz, Founder & Managing Partner of Leviathan stated.
Recently, another clean, automated ship recycling solution was launched. Namely, Circular Maritime Technologies International (CMT) introduced a circular process for the ship breaking industry, aiming to provide a solution to the problem of dangerous ship scrapping.
