Ship recycling yards are industrial facilities where end-of-life ships are dismantled and various materials are recovered for recycling. These facilities are typically located where large ships can be economically dismantled. Ship recycling yards enable the recycling of significant amounts of steel and other metals, providing raw materials for shipbuilding and other industries. Here are more detailed insights about ship recycling yards: ### Major Ship Recycling Areas Ship recycling operations are generally concentrated in Asia due to lower labor costs and favorable regulatory environments. The main ship recycling centers include: - **Alang, India**: One of the largest ship recycling sites in the world. - **Chittagong, Bangladesh**: Known for large-scale ship recycling activities. - **Gadani, Pakistan**: Another significant ship recycling center. - **Turkey (Aliaga)**: Stands out due to its proximity to Europe and regulatory standards. ### Process and Workflow The ship recycling process generally includes the following steps: 1. **Preparation and Assessment**: Upon arrival at the yard, hazardous materials (asbestos, chemicals, fuel residues) are identified and safely removed. 2. **Cutting and Dismantling**: The ship is dismantled using cranes and heavy equipment. Steel and other metals are separated and sent to steel mills for recycling. 3. **Recycling and Disposal**: Non-metal materials (wood, plastic, electronic equipment) are recycled or disposed of according to waste management procedures. ### Environmental and Social Issues Ship recycling activities can bring significant environmental and social issues: - **Environmental Pollution**: Asbestos, PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls), lead paint, and other hazardous materials can cause serious environmental pollution if not properly managed. - **Occupational Safety**: Ship recycling workers face hazardous working conditions, high injury risks, and health problems. - **Regulatory Standards**: Regulatory standards vary greatly between countries. Europe and America have stricter environmental and worker safety laws, whereas some Asian countries may have more lenient standards. ### Economic and Commercial Aspects The ship recycling industry provides substantial employment and economic benefits: - **Employment**: Ship recycling facilities directly and indirectly employ thousands of people. - **Recycling**: Metals obtained from ship recycling are reused in shipbuilding, construction, and other industries. - **Economic Contribution**: Ship recycling activities bring economic activity to the regions where the yards are located. ### International Regulations The ship recycling industry is subject to various international agreements and regulations: - **Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships**: An international agreement aimed at ensuring that ship recycling does not pose unnecessary risks to human health and the environment. - **Basel Convention**: Regulates the transboundary movements and disposal of hazardous wastes. Ship recycling yards play a crucial role in industrial recycling, but they also carry significant environmental and social responsibilities that must be carefully managed.

Mining operations are not only safer but also more efficient and environmentally conscious, thanks to heavy equipment. Those metl things on the track are for changing out a track. By squeezing the grease out of the open port that is used to spread the tracks therefore shrinking the track and then grease is put back in to stretch the idlers when the new tracks back on And just to think, all that power, is developed by pumping a small amount of a special grade oil, into a cylinder to push it away, then pump to the opposite end to push it back! Hydraulics!

Great to see a old style excavator stil going strong. The Volvo is originally a Swedish brand called 'Akerman', which Volvo purchased in the 1990's. They produced the Akerman machines under the Volvo name in Sweden for some few year in the 90's, then the factory were shut down and Volvo moved all production to the Samsung's excavator factory in South Korea which they bought in the end of the 90's. There Volvo started creating their new line of excavators mostly based on the Samsung excavator design, but with many ideas from the Akerman Great job by all means he crew members and operational staff. And it's great to see how powerful MAN 8×4 prime movers are ... That's what German iconic brands are...
