Just an update as to how things are progressing at TERRC.

The Caloosahatchee & Compass Island looks to have been completely scrapped now, as there is no visable sign of them from the road bridge. Also one of the WD barges (the one that was moored next to the quayside) looks to have been scrapped.

The Clemenceau's scrapping is progressing well, a start has been made on the rear of the ship. About half of the back end has been removed either side of the centre line of the carrier. With the internal floors with daylight visable lighting up the internals.

It won't be long before the major demolition externally of the Canisteo will begin, as a fair bit of cutting into sections has already been undertaken.

The Canopus still looks fully intact, wether they are waiting to finish of the Clemenceau before demolition starts on the Canopus.


Whilst looking on the Hartlepool Council website I came across the Planning applications page for Able UK/ TERRC which includes plans, comments, responses etc
http://edrms.hartlepool.gov.uk:80/PAP/SEARCHRESULT.asp?appnumber=H/2007/0543

Link for the latest plans and layout of the yard can be found here:
http://edrms.hartlepool.gov.uk/PAP/showimage.asp?j=H/2007/0543&index=92356
This plan shows the extension of the basin to dig out and expand the old internal dry dock.

I will try to get more shots from the bridge of the progress in the coming couple of weeks when I get the chance.

The general cargo ship Eider is currently berthed at TERRC 10, which arrived this morning and is loading scrap metal.

Latest shot of Clemenceau, she is now a hollow shell, as can be seen from the image. It looks like she is on course for completion in June.

Also the next ship to load scrap has arrived this morning, the  A. B. Dublin.

I have had a shock when I went past the yard today, on how empty the basin is looking.

The Canisteo not much remains.

The Clemenceau is the biggest shock, only one starboard side section remains upright, the rest totally dissapeared.

The Canopus is starting to really dissapear. A good proportion of the front of the ship has gone and a good start has been made to the rear.

With the amount of progress that has gone on and the speed of the scrapping. I think that by the end of September there will be none/ or very little of the ships remaining in the basin.

I haven't got any pictures of the ships recently due to big piles of scrap blocking the view of the remains of the ships.  

So the next question will be. What will be the next arrivals to face the axe?

Just been given this link over on the shipais forum.

A bit of info about Able UK's new piece of machinery with an interesting shot of the Clem.

I had a drive past this afternoon and saw that they had moved a bit of scrap. So I was able to get some pics, I will try and get them online a bit later.

Hartlepool Mail
Ghost ship work completed

The scrap has been dissapearing fast over the couple of months, with numerous ships and trains serving TERRC. So time to look forward and wait for what is next to arrive.

Just hope they get the dock gates built and operational fairly quickly, or if anything would they demolish the bound and bring stuff in and rebuild bound again then build and install the gates during the next round of ship dismantling.

A couple of shots of the scrap trains serving the TERRC.

So it looks like that within a couple of months we could be seeing the next ships etc arriving for scrapping. I just hope they will be some interesting arrivals.

An application to secure funding from the Regional Growth Fund has been granted to develop Able Seaton Port.

Local media have ran stories relating to the Regional Growth Fund winners.

The Hartlepool Mail
http://www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk/news/business/job-news/multi_million_pound_boost_for_local_firms_1_3924888

The Northern Echo
http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/local/hartlepool/9336109.__93m_for_jobs___but_is_it_enough_/

I like this quote from the Northern Echo story:

“It will mean, for instance, that we will be able to accommodate the largest aircraft carriers in the world and the largest heavy-lift vessels.”

I was only reading last week about the award being given to the Pieter Schelte for removal and transportation of the rigs. And I had a feeling that Able UK had a good chance of getting the contract.
