Responsible Ship Recycling
Tidewater is committed to the sustainable and socially responsible recycling of ships. Safeguarding the environment and human health and safety are our priorities when recycling vessels. All recycling of vessels is conducted in accordance with applicable laws and regulations – these include the 2009 Hong Kong Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, the Basel Convention on the Control of the Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal and, where applicable, EU and U.S. EPA Ship Recycling Regulations.
As a leader in the responsible sale and recycling of OSVs, Tidewater has developed considerable knowledge and systems to manage the recycling process.
