Wirana has been an ardent proponent of environmentally safe and responsible ship recycling. Working closely with several yards, Wirana has been continuously encouraging them and guiding them to improve recycling standards which meet most stringent requirements for green recycling of major ship owners. Many yards have gone for green certification.
Besides encouraging yards for green recycling, Wirana has been sponsoring and speaking at conferences that promote green recycling.
Wirana has provided major stock-listed owners with proper guidance and recycling solutions in accordance with Hong Kong Convention and European Union Ship Recycling Regulations for their tonnages.
From a commercial point of view, green recycling has been challenging for yards as it requires substantial investments. However, it has always been our policy to educate and encourage yards to recycle in a more responsible manner by separating hazardous material, identifying, storing and disposing hazardous material in a safe way leading to minimal environmental impact and ensuring worker’s safety.
Besides environment, Wirana has encouraged yards to invest in workers’ safety by using adequate safety gears and training workers on safety aspects.
Wirana understands and promotes procedure of separating primary recycling from secondary recycling and to concretize secondary cutting section to ensure that land underneath stays free from hazardous materials. These are in lines with latest environmental standards including Hong Kong Convention and European Union Ship Recycling Regulations.
At the same time, Wirana continues to work with Classification Society and Independent Experts, whose services are recommended to yards for improving their processing standards.
