       马士基(Maersk)拥有并运营着全球最大的集装箱船队,近期已在土耳其出售了一艘9640 TEU的“Sine Maersk”号集装箱船,准备拆解。




       马士基发言人在一份声明中对Offshore Energy平台Green Marine栏目表示:“我们特此确认,‘Sine Maersk’号已被送往土耳其阿里亚加(Aliaga)进行可靠的回收。这艘丹麦船籍的超巴拿马型船(9640 TEU)建于1998年,将在符合欧盟认证的Sök Denizcilik Tic. Ltd. Sti船厂进行拆解,该拆船厂曾在2017年负责马士基‘Maersk Pembroke’号的拆解回收工作。”
















       该项目已经实施了两年,当时A.P. Møller – Mærsk A/S的首席执行官Søren Skou表示,印度阿朗的拆船企业正朝着符合高安全及环保标准的方向转型。




Maersk sells giant containership for green recycling in Turkey


Maersk, owner and operator of the world’s largest container shipping fleet, has sold a 9, 640 TEU containership Sine Maersk for demolition in Turkey.


The 22-year-old containership has a market value of $ 11.69 million, according to the data from VesselsValue.


“We hereby confirm that Sine Maersk has been sent for responsible recycling to Aliaga, Turkey. Build in 1998, this Danish flag Post-Panamax ship (9.640 TEU) will be dismantled at Sök Denizcilik Tic. Ltd. Sti – an E.U. compliant certified yard, who we engaged in 2017 for the recycling of Maersk Pembroke,” a Maersk spokesperson told Offshore Energy-Green Marine in a statement.


The Turkish shipyard has been included in the European List of approved ship recycling facilities that comply with strict safety and environmental criteria. As of January 2020, it contained 41 shipyards.


The move is being made as industry majors work on cutting vessel oversupply and dwindling demand due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Cutting vessel capacity through blanking of sailings and idling of ships will probably not be enough for container liners to address the drop in demand and preserve stable rates.


Therefore, scrapping older tonnage might be the best way to go, as interest in new acquisitions has been pretty low due to restricted access to capital and demand woes.


Being at the forefront of green initiatives, Maersk has been a strong advocate of green recycling in line with its sustainability goals.


Its ships were predominantly dismantled at shipyards in Turkey and China, which are top providers of economically viable and responsible ship recycling.


However, in 2016 Maersk launched an initiative to help upgrade ship-recycling facilities and practices in Alang yards in order to make them compliant with the company’s standards.


Two years into the project, the then Chief Executive Officer of  A.P. Møller – Mærsk A/S, Søren Skou said that shipbreaking yards in Alang, India were on the track of transformation toward becoming compliant with high safety and environmental standards.
