    logo11 Scrapping risks

    In the May 2018 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Scrapping risks". The article discusses the recent conviction of a ship owner and two senior executives for illegal export of ships for scrapping. It behooves owners to carefully consider options when their ships reach to end of their economic lives. While some economic benefit will be lost by scrapping those ships in full compliance with the various laws and regulations, there will be gains in areas of worker safety and health and the environment.
