Hi Clyde, yes it is nice to know that more and more shipowners choose to their ships must become scrapped environment.

Thanks for your comments
Best Regards

Bendt, obviously there is a connection between care for the environment and cleanliness. It is wonderful that the ships you show being environmentally scrapped are always neat and tidy.

Exactly Mattyboy, then there is after all something preserved from her.

Best Regards

That's good to know. I know she's only a ship but the heart of SHETLAND CEMENT will live on !

I can tell you Mattyboy that the fine old engine is dismantled and is now stored in the warehouse, so it will not be destroyed.

Best Regards

Whoever puts a blowtorch to this engine, it must make their heart sink ! Clean-looking piece of machinery.
