  • 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.

  • 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.

He has to silence it all when he turns on his blow torch and focuses solely on weakening the structure of the very ship he stands on; right now he is working on the metal holdings around the mast. He stands away cautiously as the weakened mast is hooked on to a whinge and it's pulled down. The bulking mast hits the bottom of the hull, the boom reaches his ears and touches his skin, it reminds him a little bit of his village, of his childhood, when he would drop a metal bucket in well to collect water. With no time for nostalgia he gets back to cutting another part of the hull, he does this every day for 8-10 hours; his safety net is his experience. He is one of the 66,00...

    Ship breaking is one of the most hazardous jobs in the world because most ships are used to carry radioactive materials, toxic wastes, extremely poisonous chemicals and oil. Not only does it directly affect the health of the workers, it is an environmental time bomb - as workers strip the ships marooned on the sea shore, there is severe contamination of the sea bed, eventually seeping into the marine food chain. We visit the world's biggest ship breaking yard, Alang.

The global shipping industry has been in a slump... and while Korean shipbuilders have been struggling to stay afloat amid falling orders and massive losses,... Chinese players are making their way into the ranks of the industry′s elite. Kim Min-ji sheds light on the signs of a possible dethronement in the works. Are Korean shipbuilders′ golden days almost over? For the first time ever,... a Chinese shipyard has broken into the top five global players in terms of order backlog. According to UK-based Clarkson Research Services,... Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding had an order backlog in November of just over three million compensated gross tons,... an indicator of the level of shipbuilding ouput. That puts the Chinese company in fifth place. All of the top five positions had been held by Korean shipbuilders until now. Ranking first was Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering with eight-point-two million CGTs,... followed by Samsung Heavy Industries with just over five million. Korean shipbuilders have been engaging in belt-tightening measures after posting eye-watering losses in recent months,... mainly brought on by delayed construction, cancelled orders,... as well as rising costs and low global oil prices. Korea′s ″big three″ logged a combined loss of over four billion dollars in the first half of the year. Even more concerning is that prospects aren′t looking good for next year either. ″The difficult situation they′re in will continue into 2016. There′s two main factors that will have an effect oil prices and global cargo volume. Only when oil prices start to pick up,... will the industry hope to see recovery signs.″ Analysts say that in order to maintain competitivness... local shipbuilders need to focus on their core strengths... rather than expand their business,... like branching off into construction of offshore plants where they lack experience. They add that the government will need to help small shipbuilders,... as it′s only a matter of time before Chinese shipyards catch up. Kim Min-ji, Arirang News.

The bothering heat and shouts of his Mukadam mingles with the echoes of machine and men usually 30 to 70 feet below him. He has to silence it all when he turns on his blow torch and focuses solely on weakening the structure of the very ship he stands on; right now he is working on the metal holdings around the mast. He stands away cautiously as the weakened mast is hooked on to a whinge and it's pulled down. The bulking mast hits the bottom of the hull, the boom reaches his ears and touches his skin, it reminds him a little bit of his village, of his childhood, when he would drop a metal bucket in well to collect water. With no time for nostalgia he gets back to cutting another part of the hull, he does this every day for 8-10 hours; his safety net is his experience. He is one of the 66,000 workers who work on the ship breaking yards at Alang in Gujarat and Darukhana in Mumbai. They migrate from UP, Orissa, Bihar and various other states across India in search of employment and better life. The job of these workers is to strip the raw materials from these ships and sell them to various integral industries i.e. construction, steel mills, to name a few. The ship breaking industry as always been surrounded with myths and controversies. With many reports in the media mostly giving it a broad tag of "hazardous to environment" which is far from the truth, what ship-breaking actually does is reuse valuable raw materials striped from a dead ship, which would end up being more hazardous if left in the sea. The primary pressing issue of ship breaking which gets skirted is its workers. The process of ship-breaking requires workers from the start to the end. Often to skirt costs; untrained contractual workers will be hired, safety equipment will be ignored and benefits will be skimmed. In this documentary 'Echoes of Ship-Breaking' we'll be entering through the backdoor of the ship-breaking industry to see: • How the industry processes labour and ships • How ships are brought in and labourers are hired, and how it starts • The industry's questionable history regarding worker laws • Why and how ship breaking reached India • How ship breaking affects the environment • Breaking down the process of ship-breaking in India • Its contribution to India and the future of ship breaking in India

Ship breaking is one of the most hazardous jobs in the world because most ships are used to carry radioactive materials, toxic wastes, extremely poisonous chemicals and oil. Not only does it directly affect the health of the workers, it is an environmental time bomb - as workers strip the ships marooned on the sea shore, there is severe contamination of the sea bed, eventually seeping into the marine food chain. We visit the world's biggest ship breaking yard, Alang.

From what is generally acknowledged to be the first build of fully cellular container ships over 1000 teu, the first of the class to go to scrap at Alang breakers in India. 4 of the 5 sister ships had been re-engined to more economical diesel engines but the Flinders remained as steam turbine to the end. The 6th ship of the class, the Jervis Bay had been previously lost during a storm on Bilboa breakwater whilst undertow to the breakers. Launched July 1968 Hamburg Beached October 1996 Alang Built for the Europe to Australia and later also New Zealand trades, the ship spent all her life back and forth on these runs. Apologies for the quality - a colleagues 1990's video camera.
