Ship Recycling

Back to news

Although we have a modern fuel-efficient fleet, vessel recycling is an important matter on which Ardmore takes a proactive stance. Ardmore supports the principles of the IMO Hong Kong convention and respects the EU regulation on ship recycling through its efforts to ensure the industry achieves further continuous improvement.

The Inventory of Hazardous Materials (“IHM”) as well as relevant class notations are important aspects underpinning our recycling policy, thereby ensuring that the entire life of a vessel, beginning with its construction and updated on a regular basis throughout its life cycle, are properly documented. All Ardmore vessels have an approved IHM, certified in accordance with regulatory requirements.
