Maersk Joins the Bandwagon, Scraps a 1092 TEU Maersk Aberdeen

After Evergreen Marine Corporation, Shreyas Shipping and Logistics, Regional Container Lines and Wan Hai Lines, Maersk Line scrapped its 1999-built 1092 TEU Maersk Aberdeen due to lower cargo demand and cleared port traffic.

The vessel was sold to a Malaysian buyer, Accurate International, in Jebel Ali on an as-is basis. It was then demolished on February 2nd in Alang, India. The ship was sent for green recycling, thus lowering its scrap value to $2.78 million from the demolition value of $3.3 million.

Alang offers higher liquidity and better steel plate rates and, thus, is preferred for ship recycling. Besides, PaxOcean Engineering’s shipyard in Batam, Indonesia, also offers green recycling.
