Ship Recycling Project Management Cornwall UK - Intro
After 100 years or more of service a typical motor fishing vessel is coated in hazardous chemicals and has many types of oil driven systems, engines and fuels stored within it. To dismantle a motor fishing vessel in situ requires a project management strategy that puts protection of the environment at the forefront.
Ship Recycling Project Management Cornwall UK - The Ship
Wooden fishing vessels have a low scrap value, and as such are prone to being left to rot in harbours and estuaries across the UK.

Ship Recycling Project Management Cornwall UK - The Method
Obviously to explain the method in detail here would be rather long winded. But care was taken through out that the marine environment should be protected at all stages. As with all waste management activities the key is to segregate the maximum percentage of arising wastes so as to retrieve recyclable scrap, and minimize wastes to landfill.
Arising wastes consisted mostly of wood, concrete, iron and steel.

Southwest Environmental Limited maintain an on site present during critical stages of the salvage operation, to ensure that the ship recycling project is managed effectively.

Ship Recycling Project Management Cornwall UK - The Result
With the ship now removed from the harbour all stakeholders are happy. The harbour is at a lower risk from pollution incidents relating to the derelict boats, there is more room, and a maximum percentage of waste was diverted from land fill.
