Leveraging attractive steel prices to drive more ships to the recycling yards
SINGAPORE, Aug. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ships are sent for demolition typically after between 15 and 20 years of usage. However, the pandemic's pressure has compelled some shipowners to sustain themselves by raising capital with early vessel scrapping – cashing in on attractive steel prices. The cyclical nature of ship demolition also poses a challenge for many shipowners to catch the period where steel prices are at their peak. Marine Online closes the gap between shipowners and market fluidity by offering reliable information, enabling shipowners to maximise their investments at the right times.
