Sustainable Recycling Of First Ship In History


  • In cooperation with Leviathan GmbH, German Naval Yards welcomes the first ship.
  • It is to be recycled 100% sustainably for the first time. Parts of the ship will be transformed into works of art.

A recent news article published in the Safety4Sea states that first ship to be 100% sustainably recycled in Kiel.

Sustainable recycling process

Together with German Naval Yards in Kiel, the sustainable recycling process will now be applied for the first time on a 41m long landing boat. The pilot project will start on 20th of June and is expected to be completed within six weeks, by the end of July.

After a successful trial, approval in accordance with EU Regulation 1257 (EU Ship Recycling Regulation) will be applied. The experts at Leviathan will receive full support from the experienced workers from German Naval Yards and suitable shipyard facilities are made available for the project.

For German Naval Yards, who traditionally builds and converts vessels, environmentally friendly recycling is a welcome new challenge that we gladly embrace

says Sofien Lamiri, Chief Operating Officer at GERMAN NAVAL YARDS.

Way for larger projects

Karsten Schumacher, Managing Partner at Leviathan, added: that “the experience and infrastructure of this traditional shipyard are a guarantee for the successful completion of this project and at the same time will pave the way for further larger projects.”

The project partners offer artists the opportunity to reuse parts and materials of the vessel to further process them or to convert them into works of art.
