SHIP DEMOLITION

Après l’affaire du porte-avions Clemenceau, Robin des Bois a voulu y voir clair dans le monde de la démolition et du recyclage des vieux navires de commerce et militaires en fin de vie. A cet effet, un bulletin trimestriel d’information et d’analyses a été mis en chantier et lancé en 2006. Chaque numéro de « A la casse », « Shipbreaking » en version anglaise, est un tour du monde des meilleures techniques disponibles et beaucoup plus nombreuses des pires techniques disponibles. Un gros succès éditorial épluché par les spécialistes du monde entier.

Built in 1965 by Uljanik Shipyards in Pula, Croatia, the Portuguese-flagged cruise ship Porto, is laid-up in Lisbon for 4 years. According to the European regulation, from January 1, 2019 onward, she will have to be demolished in one of the 21 EU-approved ship recycling yards.
