You can never have enough steel Jens, it is the firm favorite meal and dessert is strawberry pie :-)))

And no, it is not normal to the long of dismantling time but it was a tough one and she was at one point moved around and then come to lie on hold, then came back to crane quay and made ready to be pulled ashore the happens occasionally.

Thanks for the comment Jens

"For whom the bell tolls" or "Greedy Greena's insatiable hunger for steel"... :-))

As always a most interesting set of photos of a ship's end. As I have no idea about it - is seven months a normal time span for the demolition of a ship of that size? I assume that compared to Aliaga or the far eastern scrapyards Grenaa has a rather small scrapping facility...
