  • The Ship Breakers of Bangladesh: VICE INTL

    There aren't too many places left in the world where the practice of ship breaking—scrapping old ships for metal—can still exist. These days, environmental and labor regulations in the developed world have displaced the practice to India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, where cargo carriers are salvaged for their steel. The largest vessels wind up on the shores of the city of Chittagong in Bangladesh, where the industry has become a vital part of the country's urbanization. It employs roughly 200,000 workers and supplies the country with 80 percent of its steel. Ship breakers beach and dismantle vessels daily wearing flip­-flops and T-shirts. It's no easy task, considering ships are constructed to withstand the elements for the 30 years they spend operating on international waters. We decided t...

  • The Dark side of the Shipping Industry - Ship Breakers

    In a nut shell, 'ship breaking' is where large numbers of used ships are sent to developing countries like China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Turkey, they are systematically broken down by the cheap labor hired by these ship breakers. Workers are not trained, they are not supplied PPE and they get paid about $1 per day to work 12 hours every day, 7 days a week.

    This is amazing, everybody knows the shipbreaking yard in Alang, India but there is also one in Gaddani or Gadani beach in Pakistan. The Gadani ship-breaking yard is a centre for the breaking up of derelict ocean-going vessels for scrap. The yard is located in Gadani, Pakistan, about 50 kilometres northwest of Karachi. This is a compilation from the documentary "Workingman's Death", see http://www.workingmansdeath.com In the 1980s,the Gadani yard was described as the largest ship-breaking yard in the world, with more than 30,000 direct employees. However, competition from newer facilities in India and Bangladesh resulted in a significant reduction in output, with the Gadani yard producing less than one fifth of the scrap it produced twenty years ago. A reduction in taxes on scrap met...

  • Emerald at Alang Ship-Breakers

    A very sad sight, and the end of an era, in more ways than one, The 'Emerald', formerly the Santa Rosa of Grace Line. The last of the steam driven ocean liners, built during the swan-song period of traditional shipbuilding, and the end of an era for us of ocean liner salvage. Those warehouse-busting quantities of mid-century treasures are all gone now. Believe me, you could fit what you'd want to salvage from a recently built passenger ship, in the boot of your car. The Emerald was a let down, re-fitted to death in the 70's and 80's, not worth the 2 near-death experiences getting to and fro the Ship during monsoon tides, but when you've gone 3000 miles you got to go the last 1.

  • Scrapped: the deadly business of dismantling ships in Bangladesh

    Bangladesh has no metal resources of its own city, so the shipbreaking yards in Chittagong, its largest second city, generate high profits for their owners. Workers though, enjoy none of the benefits of that profit; wages are barely enough to live on and there are no health and safety regulations to protect them. Injuries are a frequent occurrence and even death is not uncommon.

The ship breaking is always been running depending on the availability of vessels and recently the demand of steel has picked up in the country and business is very good." 24. Wide of plane flying over wreck of oil tanker 'Tasman Spirit' 25. Long shot 'Tasman Spirit' tanker 26. Wide of oil spill clean up operation continuing on beach 27. Mid shot oil spill clean up workers STORYLINE: Pakistan's ship-breaking industry has received a massive boost thanks to the arrival of world's second biggest oil tanker at a breakers yard close to the southern port city of Karachi. This breakers yard on the Gaddani coastline, 40km (25 miles), east of Karachi, is the final resting place for the juggernaut supertanker 'The Sea Giant'. Its massive capacity, 555,000 Dwt (deadweight tons), made it the second biggest oil tanker on earth. The huge task of dismantling the French-built 'Sea Giant' is expected to revitalize Pakistan's ship-breaking industry and create more jobs. The industry on the edge of this sleepy town on the Arabian sea has been struggling to revive itself from a bearish spell in business. During the 1990s the Gaddani industry broke 40 ships in a year, but business has dwindled to just over a dozen ships a year now. The arrival of the gigantic supertanker, which used to carry half-a-million-tons of crude to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia, is just break the industry was looking for. M. Ishaq Paracha, Managing Director of Gaddani's ship breaking yard said that the recent "demand of steel has picked up in the country and business is very good." The arrival of the giant ship comes only weeks after Pakistan suffered its worst environmental disaster when an oil tanker 'Tasman Spirit' spilled thousands of tons of crude on the sea-shores near the Karachi port. The government is seeking 1 (b) billion US dollars in damages for the oil pollution caused from that disaster.

It will take 200 workers seven to eight months to dismantle the carrier, which is 213 metres (699 feet) in length and weighs 15,700 tonnes. The INS Vikrant's construction began under the name HMS Hercules for the British Royal Navy during World War II, but never entered service. India purchased the incomplete carrier in 1957, completed construction and deployed the vessel among others in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War, where it played a key role in the naval blockade of what was then East Pakistan (present-day Bangladesh). Between 1997 to 2012, the Vikrant was preserved as a museum ship in Mumbai until being withdrawn in 2012 due to safety concerns. Mumbai-based IB Commercials Ltd bought the Vikrant in an online auction in January, and has since made preparations for its dismantlement.

In a nut shell, 'ship breaking' is where large numbers of used ships are sent to developing countries like China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Turkey, they are systematically broken down by the cheap labor hired by these ship breakers. Workers are not trained, they are not supplied PPE and they get paid about $1 per day to work 12 hours every day, 7 days a week.

This is amazing, everybody knows the shipbreaking yard in Alang, India but there is also one in Gaddani or Gadani beach in Pakistan. The Gadani ship-breaking yard is a centre for the breaking up of derelict ocean-going vessels for scrap. The yard is located in Gadani, Pakistan, about 50 kilometres northwest of Karachi. This is a compilation from the documentary "Workingman's Death", see http://www.workingmansdeath.com In the 1980s,the Gadani yard was described as the largest ship-breaking yard in the world, with more than 30,000 direct employees. However, competition from newer facilities in India and Bangladesh resulted in a significant reduction in output, with the Gadani yard producing less than one fifth of the scrap it produced twenty years ago. A reduction in taxes on scrap metal led to a modest resurgence at the Yard, which now employs around 6,000 workers. In this clip we see in about 7 minutes how a ship is placed on the beach and breaking apart.

A very sad sight, and the end of an era, in more ways than one, The 'Emerald', formerly the Santa Rosa of Grace Line. The last of the steam driven ocean liners, built during the swan-song period of traditional shipbuilding, and the end of an era for us of ocean liner salvage. Those warehouse-busting quantities of mid-century treasures are all gone now. Believe me, you could fit what you'd want to salvage from a recently built passenger ship, in the boot of your car. The Emerald was a let down, re-fitted to death in the 70's and 80's, not worth the 2 near-death experiences getting to and fro the Ship during monsoon tides, but when you've gone 3000 miles you got to go the last 1. Sailed back to shore glad I had bought so much of the Augustus, the 1000pcs of furniture onboard Her doesn't seem such a Big pile anymore... Sorry I can't post the 'juiciest' alang videos, it'll ruin my relationships there, if you want to see some you'll have to drop by!

Bangladesh has no metal resources of its own city, so the shipbreaking yards in Chittagong, its largest second city, generate high profits for their owners. Workers though, enjoy none of the benefits of that profit; wages are barely enough to live on and there are no health and safety regulations to protect them. Injuries are a frequent occurrence and even death is not uncommon.
