Type of the Circular Economy Activity implemented:
Brief Description of the Activity:
The Company Fornaes Aps was founded in 1993 and has, since then, scrapped well over 1500 ships and vessels – we lost count somewhere during the years. Major part of them has been fishing vessels of various sizes, but there were also freighters, supply vessels, ferries and a military vessel among them. Most of our vessels comes from Scandinavia and UK. Shipbreaking and environment are not 2 incompatible concepts. Fornaes holds all necessary environmental approvals for scrapping ships and handling of toxic waste from them. All metals are recycled, and waste is destroyed or deposited according to environmental legislation.
Their stock counts today more than 80.000 m² of outdoor stockyard and aprx. 15.000 m² in warehouses. If you plan to pay us a visit, and take a look at the goods, which you are very welcome to do, please have in mind, that it takes quite some time to get around everything. They purchase ships and vessels for demolition constantly, so if you want to have a vessel (or more) scrapped, please feel free to contact us. You will find all contact details under “Contact”. When we make an offer for a ship, we do not only pay by the tonnes. Type, age and number of machinery and equipment onboard is taken under consideration as well. Occasionally we also buy used equipment, so you are welcome to contact us, if you have something you would like to sell.
They sell just about any kind of equipment you can place onboard a vessel, and we keep lists of many things, but it is impossible to list everything. You find our updated lists under “Marine Equipment” – If you are looking for something not listed here, send us an email, fax or call us. We might have it anyway.
