Acting as a broker, the business is able to complete the sale of the vessel in a proper fashion, creating a ship specific ship recycling plan, and assisting the owner with the last voyage and operational handover of the vessel to the ship recycling facility. By being present on a supervisory level during the recycling and dismantling stages, the company is able to ensure the entire process runs smoothly right through to the final waste disposal providing proof of proper waste handling throughout.
Oesterbaai has surveyed over 1500 vessels globally in the last decade. Both Asbestos and Inventory of Hazardous Material Surveys (IHM, according to MEPC.197(62)) have been conducted to full satisfaction of its clients. The current co-operation between Sea2Cradle and Oesterbaai is a good example of using expert HazMat-knowledge throughout the entire lifespan of a vessel.
