Ships sold for scrap
« on: May 06, 2014, 03:46:13 PM »
I had the idea that you can write into this thread all ships that are sold for scrap. I think that gives a better overview  :)
I make the start with the ships that were sold for scrap, according to the actual Optima Weekly:
- Bulk Carrier "Sea Gloria" (build in 1994; IMO 9057032), China 
- Bulk Carrier "Hebei Tengfei" (build in 1990; IMO 8901846), China
- Bulk Carrier "Yu Jie" (build in 1987; IMO 8604383), India
- Bulk Carrier "Joyous Land" (build in 1994; IMO 9047104), China 
- Bulk Carrier "Tuo Fu 3" (build in 1993; IMO 9013414), Bangladesh 
- Container Vessel "Berulan" (build in 1995; IMO 9106455), unknown
- Crude Oil Tanker "Shinyo Splendor" (build in 1993; IMO 9004530), Bangladesh
- Crude Oil Tanker "Eagle Subaru" (build in 1994; IMO 9051363), Pakistan
- Car Freighter "Morning Cedar" (build in 1982; IMO 8016548), unknown

But thats the way we're all are going, right?

Good initiative  8)

I can also recommend to follow these two reports:

1) Paul Mason's weekly market report (demolition sales are interspersed with second hand sales). The link is renewed weekly, but can be accessed from following page:

http://www.freewebs.com/paulmasonthamesshipping/index.htm

2) GMS weekly report, available on Mondays via: http://www.hellenicshippingnews.com/News.aspx?ElementID=0c3da796-f236-4796-8242-62fa2f230a28

The GMS report is particularly interesting, because it lists arrival and beaching dates at Alang, Chittagong and Gadani Beach for the majority of vessels arriving there.

...and of course, the World Ship Society's magazine, Marine News, has an exhaustive Demolitions section (monthly magazine).

And again bad news for Sietas fans:

Solveig K ( IMO 7723687) left Rostock yesterday after lay-up since 13.02.2013 - destination: Grenaa (for demolition)
(Thanks Rico for the data)

Here's a great photo Rico made when she left Rostock yesterday:

A not so cheery,

After a VERY long stay (January 2013)? at Shoreham in the UK the vessel Independent IMO: 8843874 has left in the last few days presumably being towed by the Dutch tug Barracuda which visited unless anyone knows different?
Sadly I didn't see the old girl go but I presume she has gone to meet her maker.

Thanks for the update, Phil.

No handkerchief needed... for reasons of precaution I bought some kitchen rolls yesterday... :(
