Cape Le Grand was an Aluminium Harbour Tug in operation since 1985.
While the vessel was on hardstand for maintenance, the decision was made to retire her from the fleet and have her recycled. As the vessel was on hardstand, a solution was required to conduct the project on an as is, where is basis. This added an extra level of complexity as the project needed to be conducted in the vicinity of many other multi-million-dollar yachts.
Birdon prepared a solution and were contracted to safely deconstruct and recycle the vessel in accordance with local, state, and national regulations.
Birdon established our workforce and company owned equipment on site to commence the project.
All metals were recovered and recycled; all waste material was taken to a licensed landfill.
