Two Indian Shipbreakers Become HKC-Compliant

Ship recycling facilities in Gujarat, India, Shree Ram Vessel Scrap Pvt. Ltd and Leela Ship Recycling Pvt. Ltd have received Statement of Compliance from classification society ClassNK, verifying that the facilities are in line with the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (HKC).

ClassNK said that although the HKC has yet to enter into force, Shree Ram and Leela have both carried out substantial improvements to their facilities in a bid toward safer and greener ship recycling as well as developed the Ship Recycling Facility Plans (SRFPs) required for a competent authority’s certification according to the HKC.

ClassNK reviewed the SRFPs prepared by Shree Ram and Leela, which comply with requirements of the HKC, and confirmed that their ship recycling processes follow their respective SRFPs in addition to conducting on-site inspections before issuing the SoC.

The SoC are issued based on purely technical verifications of the facilities by ClassNK, which has so far done the same for ship recycling facilities around the world.
