Circular Maritime Technologies International (CMT) introduces a revolutionary and scalable circular process for the shipbreaking industry. CMT was born out of the need and urgency to provide a solution to the problem of ship demolition, which continues to pose risks to human health and the environment. We strongly believe that the technology we have today offers the possibility of removing humans from the equation when scrapping a ship. At the CMT shipyard, no human life will be endangered because the ships will be taken out of the water and dismantled by a fully mechanized and automated system. Solving a big global problem Over the past 50 years there has been a stalemate on any kind of major development in the shipbreaking industry.
CMT said that if we act, we will act until the end, until the point where we can say that we have reached our maximum potential. CMT can no longer accept that the ship recycling business exists as it does now. We want to change it for the better; for people, for the environment and for the world. And we are confident that our well-thought-out process will have the desired impact. CMT will revolutionize ship recycling by providing clean steel through an automated, low carbon, contained and circular process that does not harm humans or the environment.
The CMT project will soon launch its proof-of-concept prototype in the Netherlands. Following an innovative and financially very solid business model, CMT will set up shipyards with international partners and attract shipowners by matching the price paid by South Asian competitors. Unique quality virgin steel composition The CMT yard operates on its own energy and produces clean steel, strongly linked to the production of green steel. The yard will gradually reduce the size of the ship through various automated tools, to the point where each part of the ship’s steel structure is reduced to many small pieces.
The CMT construction site will change from a 3D structure to a set of 2D materials of steel plates. This process is executed quickly and accurately, managed by bespoke control tools and software, but supervised by CMT’s specialized staff. Supported by renowned partners The team consists of CMT Consortium & Partners. With names like Aseco Europe, Damen Shipyards, Enviu, Fluor, Grimbergen Industrial Systems, Huisman Equipment, Jansen Recycling Group, KCI, Sea2Cradle, Sojitz Corporation and Stork, we will be off to a great start with this innovative CMT Yard.
