• Shipbreakers in Gadani beach, Pakistan

    This is amazing, everybody knows the shipbreaking yard in Alang, India but there is also one in Gaddani or Gadani beach in Pakistan. The Gadani ship-breaking yard is a centre for the breaking up of derelict ocean-going vessels for scrap. The yard is located in Gadani, Pakistan, about 50 kilometres northwest of Karachi. This is a compilation from the documentary "Workingman's Death", see http://www.workingmansdeath.com In the 1980s,the Gadani yard was described as the largest ship-breaking yard in the world, with more than 30,000 direct employees. However, competition from newer facilities in India and Bangladesh resulted in a significant reduction in output, with the Gadani yard producing less than one fifth of the scrap it produced twenty years ago. A reduction in taxes on scrap met...

    Bangladesh has no metal resources of its own city, so the shipbreaking yards in Chittagong, its largest second city, generate high profits for their owners. Workers though, enjoy none of the benefits of that profit; wages are barely enough to live on and there are no health and safety regulations to protect them.

    There aren't too many places left in the world where the practice of ship breaking—scrapping old ships for metal—can still exist. These days, environmental and labor regulations in the developed world have displaced the practice to India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, where cargo carriers are salvaged for their steel. The largest vessels wind up on the shores of the city of Chittagong in Bangladesh, where the industry has become a vital part of the country's urbanization. It employs roughly 200,000 workers and supplies the country with 80 percent of its steel. Ship breakers beach and dismantle vessels daily wearing flip­-flops and T-shirts. It's no easy task, considering ships are constructed to withstand the elements for the 30 years they spend operating on international waters. We decided t...

Mid shot oil spill clean up workers STORYLINE: Pakistan's ship-breaking industry has received a massive boost thanks to the arrival of world's second biggest oil tanker at a breakers yard close to the southern port city of Karachi. This breakers yard on the Gaddani coastline, 40km (25 miles), east of Karachi, is the final resting place for the juggernaut supertanker 'The Sea Giant'. Its massive capacity, 555,000 Dwt (deadweight tons), made it the second biggest oil tanker on earth. The huge task of dismantling the French-built 'Sea Giant' is expected to revitalize Pakistan's ship-breaking industry and create more jobs. The industry on the edge of this sleepy town on the Arabian sea has been struggling to revive itself from a bearish spell in business. During the 1990s the Gaddani industry broke 40 ships in a year, but business has dwindled to just over a dozen ships a year now. The arrival of the gigantic supertanker, which used to carry half-a-million-tons of crude to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia, is just break the industry was looking for. M. Ishaq Paracha, Managing Director of Gaddani's ship breaking yard said that the recent "demand of steel has picked up in the country and business is very good." The arrival of the giant ship comes only weeks after Pakistan suffered its worst environmental disaster when an oil tanker 'Tasman Spirit' spilled thousands of tons of crude on the sea-shores near the Karachi port. The government is seeking 1 (b) billion US dollars in damages for the oil pollution caused from that disaster.

Natural Sound The Former British P&O Flag ship Canberra has arrived at a scrap heap in Pakistan to be stripped down. Her illustrious career included a tour of duty during the Falklands war after operating as a world renowned cruise liner. After being decommissioned, she was purchased by a Pakistani ship breaker for 280 (m) million rupees (6.3 (m) million dollars). Affectionately known as the Great White Whale, the Canberra now stands in her moorings at the Gadani Shipyard, near Karachi in Pakistan. Originally, she was built at a cost of 17 (m) pounds sterling, and when launched in March 1960, was the largest British post-war passenger ship. During that decade she carried out cruises and liner voyages to Australia - whose capital city she was named after - transporting emigrating Britons. In the 1970s she became a full time cruise ship. In 1982, Canberra was requisitioned by the Ministry of Defence, converted by the military, and served a 94 day tour of duty during the Falklands war. But the glory days are over for her now - as can be seen by the deserted decks and dilapidated interior. She is gradually being taken apart by shipbreakers at this wreckers yard in Pakistan. The Gadani Shipyard bought Canberra for 280 (m) million rupees (6.3 (m) million dollars). The shipbreaking industry in Pakistan has been suffering a decline in recent years. This is due primarily to a lack of demand, but also, competitors such as India offer lower prices. The Gadani Shipyard has found an illustrious addition to its fold, in the Canberra. Her value will now be measured ashore by the shipbreakers who are stripping her of her fixtures, fittings, and in time, her grandeur.

Close up of a mechanised pulley in action pulling piece of the ship 5. A piece of ship being pulled into the sea 6. Ship breaker Aqeel Khan standing on the beach 7. SOUNDBITE (Urdu) Aqeel Khan, ship breaker: "Work used to be brisk at the Gadani ship yards and once around 300 to 350 workers used to work in a single ship-breaking yard. But things have changed over the last few years and now barely 50 workers are employed in a single yard because of the non-availability of vessels." 8. Wide of empty ship-breaking yard at Gadani 9. Various of labourers cutting up pieces of iron 10. SOUNDBITE (Pushto) Mehran Mohannad, ship breaker: "I have come here from the north of the country to work but the work is not consistent here. When I do get a job I send all the money to my family but when there is no work it becomes very difficult to survive." 11. Various of ship breaking yard Karachi, Pakistan 12. SOUNDBITE (Urdu) : Mohammad Umar Memon, Pakistan Ship Breakers' Association: "Pakistan's used to be number 2 after Taiwan in ship breaking. But with the passage of time and changing market conditions the industry has become virtually dead. The prices of ships that we used to purchase at US$150 per metric ton from the international market rose sharply to US$350 to US$400 per metric ton because of buying from China and Bangladesh. Because of this situation the importing of ships became unfeasible. But after negotiations with the government (the Pakistan government slashed customs duty and income tax on the industry), they agreed to give some incentives to the industry and now the industry today is getting back on its feet." Gadani, Balochistan, Pakistan 13. Various of workers cutting ship plate 14. Various of bulldozer shifting pieces of metal 15. Workers loading a truck. 16. Transport vehicle leaving the yard. 17. Transport vehicle on Mehran Coastal highway to Karachi LEAD IN: A once booming industry in Pakistan, ship breaking, has been through difficult times in past few years. Recent talks between industry representatives and the government, however, has meant the ship yards are about to get a new lease of life. STORYLINE: The 'Flag Supplier' a 12-thousand ton ship, was manufactured in Japan in 1978, spent her years sailing the seven seas and recently arrived here on the shores of the Arabian Sea. She has been retired and has come here to the Gadani ship yards in Pakistan for dismantling. Huge pieces of the ship are removed little by little, bit by bit. Ship breaking used to be a huge industry for Pakistan but has declined over the years following a surge in the international prices for second-hand ships. The Pakistani industry was also not able to compete with China, Bangladesh and India, where duties are much lower and more industry-friendly. Aqeel Khan has been working at the ship breaking yards for the past 20 years. He says the industry is not what it was. Gadani ship breaking yard, once a huge local employer is now virtually empty. Hundreds of workers had to be laid off because there were simply no ships to dismantle. Ship breaker Mehran Mohannad travelled from the north of Pakistan to work in ship breaking. He says the work is good -- when he gets it. But the industry is slowly but surely recovering. Representatives from the ship-breaking industry have been able to convince the Pakistani government to provide some incentives to revive the industry. The government abolished customs duty on the import of second-hand ships, meaning it was profitable for the ships to be dismantled at Gadani again.

There aren't too many places left in the world where the practice of ship breaking—scrapping old ships for metal—can still exist. These days, environmental and labor regulations in the developed world have displaced the practice to India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, where cargo carriers are salvaged for their steel. The largest vessels wind up on the shores of the city of Chittagong in Bangladesh, where the industry has become a vital part of the country's urbanization. It employs roughly 200,000 workers and supplies the country with 80 percent of its steel. Ship breakers beach and dismantle vessels daily wearing flip­-flops and T-shirts. It's no easy task, considering ships are constructed to withstand the elements for the 30 years they spend operating on international waters. We decided to check it out.

Gadani Beach is a beach on the Arabian Sea located near the Hub River and Cape Monze in Gadani, Lasbela District, Balochistan, Pakistan. This is amazing, everybody knows the shipbreaking yard in Alang, India but there is also one in Gaddani or Gadani beach in Pakistan. The Gadani ship-breaking yard is a centre for the breaking up of derelict ocean-going vessels for scrap. The yard is located in Gadani, Pakistan, about 50 kilometres northwest of Karachi. In the 1980s,the Gadani yard was described as the largest ship-breaking yard in the world, with more than 30,000 direct employees. However, competition from newer facilities in India and Bangladesh resulted in a significant reduction in output, with the Gadani yard producing less than one fifth of the scrap it produced twenty years ago. A reduction in taxes on scrap metal led to a modest resurgence at the Yard, which now employs around 6,000 workers. Supertanker named FRONT DRIVER, built in 1991 by Hyundai Heavy Industries South Korea (and owned by Frontline Management of Norway) - Now at the end of it's service life comes to Gadani beach of Pakistan, for decommissioning and breaking. All the steel (almost 90,000 tons of it) will now get recycled, and used within Pakistan. This video shows how a giant ship such as this arrived at Gadani beach (on November 28th 2012), and how got broken up.
