Shipbuilding was until recently a symbol of China's industrial might. Now shipyards across China are being driven out of business by weak global demand for new ships.

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.

This feature documentary profiles a bustling Indian shantytown where 40,000 people live and work in the most primitive conditions.
Broadcast: 17 February 2013 on Sunday Night, Seven Network, Australia. It's one of the most jaw-dropping sights of the modern world. For as far as the eye can see, along a stretch of coastline in Bangladesh, hundreds of mammoth supertankers lie beached on the sand. This is where the world's ships come to die. Tim joins the thousands of workers, some of them children, who are paid just 47 cents a day to break up these rusting giants with their bare hands.

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...

RR9507/D - INDIA: SHIP BREAKING (dur: 6 min 4 sec/eng. sot: 1 min 2 sec) The Indian beach of Alang near Bhavnagar in Western Guajarat State is one of the largest ship breaking yards in the world. At any one time more than a hundred vessels from small cruisers to massive oil tankers can be seen scattered in pieces across a five kilometre stretch of the shore. Working a gruelling seventy hours a week in soaring temperatures crews of Indian workers have turned the place into a vast and eerie ship's cemetery.

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 66,00...
The shipyards at Alang recycle approximately half of all ships salvaged around the world.It is considered the world's largest graveyard of ships.
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.
On muddy beaches in Asia -- in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China -- most of the world's ships are taken apart. Worked on by hundreds of unprotected and often inadequately trained workers, they quickly become piles of scrap steel and parts. Scrapping ships is one of the most work-intensive and dangerous jobs there is. All in all, the highly hazardous shipbreaking industry -- including all branches with a direct link to the scrapping operations -- employs over 160,000 workers in India alone. IMF and its affiliates are working together to improves the lives of shipbreaking workers.
