Well, when Hyundai will start using their dry docks for breaking, that will mean really serious trouble for Korean shipbuilding...but we should keep an open mind.

So far, I am seeing ships being demolished here in Korea in some small repair shipyards only.

Lappino, in the same as Hyundai helped to demolish the ULCC fleet in the eigthies?

To beach or not to beach... is a statutory question; it means politics is involved, and so it becomes increasingly difficult to solve.
However, now that many ship building facilities are in trouble, I expect some "clean" (= dry dock) players entering the breaking market.

Peter, the Indians know this already for a long time..

Unfortunately "not competitve" as long as the authorities allow the beaching method.

Very clean idea of how shipbreaking can be done , instead of ramming the ship up the beach , remove all above the waterline then dry dock her to complete the task
Shall we tell the India and Pakistan ?
