Two workers killed in Alang

Two labourers died at Alang shipbreaking yard in Bhavnagar on Tuesday after an iron plate fell on them. The accident took place at plot number 20 that is owned by Amit Sheth. The deceased have been identified as Vishwanath Gaud (20) and Bensu Pradhan Odiya (24) of Orissa.

Sources said that an iron plate fell on them and crushed them while they were working. They were rushed to a hospital in Bhavnagar, where they succumbed to their injuries.

Earlier in December last year, a worker Shambhuram Rajvanshi from Uttar Pradesh had died after an iron plate fell on him at plot number two of the shipbreaking yard.

Sources said accidents of falling of iron plates on labourers occur frequently at Alang, which is Asia's biggest shipbreaking yard.

In March 2013, one worker died and five others were injured after an iron object fell on them while working at plot number 73 of the breaking yard.

Uss Forrestal heading for scrapyard

The decommissioned aircraft carrier Forrestal (AVT 59) is scheduled to begin its final voyage Feb. 4, weather permitting, when it will depart Philadelphia on its way to a ship dismantling and recycling facility in Brownsville, Texas, Naval Sea Systems Command announced in a Jan. 31 release.

The ship will be towed down the Delaware River, along the Eastern Seaboard, and across the Gulf of Mexico to arrive at the All Star Metals facility. The best opportunity for viewing the departure will be from publicly accessible areas along the Delaware River.

The Navy awarded a ship dismantling contract to All Star Metals of Brownsville on Oct. 22, and the company subcontracted with Foss Marine Towing to tow the ship to its final destination.

The first of the “supercarriers,” Forrestal was launched Dec. 11, 1954, by Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Co., and commissioned Sept. 29, 1955.

Forrestal was decommissioned Sept. 11, 1993, after more than 38 years of service. On June 16, 1999, the Navy announced the ship would be available for donation to an eligible organization for use as a museum or memorial. However, no viable applications were received and the vessel was removed from donation hold in December 2003 and redesignated for disposal.

In October, the Navy competitively awarded a contract to All Star Metals for the towing, dismantling and recycling of conventionally powered aircraft carriers. Under the terms of the contract, the company will be paid $0.01 for dismantling and recycling ex-USS Forrestal, which is the lowest price the Navy could possibly have paid the contractor for the work.

The Navy continues to own the ship until it has been fully dismantled. The contractor takes ownership of the scrap metal as it is produced and sells the scrap to offset its cost of operations.

Profit from ship breaking

Not withstanding environmental and human rights issues, the ship-breaking industry is thriving in the country with the government allowing at least 450-500 ships to come to India for dismantling every year. 

This has also turned out to be profitable for the government which has been making more than Rs 1,500 crore a year from customs duty on allowing import of such outdated ships. In fact, some coastal states such as Gujarat have urged the Centre to bring down the customs duty so that more ships can be imported for dismantling. 

Every day, thousands of workers engaged in ship-breaking are exposed to radioactive waste considered dangerous for human life. Even areas around ship-breaking yards and the sea water gets contaminated and unfit for habitation or for marine life. 

A petition filed in the apex court had argued that toxic metals and gases were exposed to the environment and affected a large population. Mostly, ship-breaking activities are carried out along the Mumbai and Alang in Gujarat. 

In the last four years, at least 1,850 ships have been imported to India for breaking and recycling of scrap. The government made over Rs 4,700 crore in the last four years from customs duty on these ships. 

Besides risks to workers engaged in the ship-breaking industry, it generates lead particles and releases metal particles in the air which is dangerous for the health of people in the area who are inhaling toxic air. Exposure to toxic air has already resulted in people in large numbers having reported diseases like high blood pressure, heart diseases and psychological problems. Presence of asbestos is said to have caused cancer to people exposed to ship-breaking activities.
