The video provides a timelapse of a ship breaking procedure in the world’s largest ship recycling facility, in Alang, India. Alang has been found several times at the centre of global criticism regarding the unsafe working conditions and environmentally unsustainable practices, as Bangladeshi and Pakistani shipbreaking yards.
The video by National Geographic provides an insight into working conditions in one of the world’s largest ship recycling yards. Shipbreaking is considered as one of the world’s most dangerous jobs. Men desperate for work demolish ships in grueling conditions, braving the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls.
The video presents Baijnath Melaram’s new offshore crane that facilitates ship recycling in India, without contaminating the water. The 180-feet crane, with a capacity of 150 metric tons, is the only one in India that can reach the Aft of any vessel.
Video shows Petter Heier,CEO of Grieg Green, offering ship owners an alternative to the controversial “beaching” method to demolish ships.
