India to restart ship-recycling yards at Sachana

India plans to restart the country’s second ship-recycling yard at Sachana in Gujarat after receiving clearances from the state‘s forest and environment departments. The yards were ordered to suspend operations in 2012 following a dispute regarding a part of land posing a threat to aquatic flora and fauna

According to the government release, the ship-breaking yard in Sachana will be modelled on the one in Alang, although industry players say lack of capacity has never been an issue and the Alang recyclers have the advantage of being better recognised
