Nothing is too big to scrap!
Global metal recycling firm EMR recently towed into one of its Gulf of Mexico ship-breaking facilities the fifth vessel from a fleet of six United States Navy vessels awarded to the United Kingdom-based firm for dismantling by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
“We were honored to be awarded the contract to dismantle these vessels, which have a history of important service to their country along with their dedicated crews,” says Andrew Sheppard, chief operating officer of Southern Recycling.
