EU warmly congratulate KPL on their inclusion in the EU List of approved yards for ship recycling which has been adopted by the European Commission.
The European Commission, commented;
“We are pleased to inform you that the relevant Commission Implementing Decision establishing the latest edition of the European List of ship recycling facilities and including Kishorn Port Ltd has been adopted today by the European Commission. The said Decision will be published in the Official Journal of the EU shortly. We would like to warmly congratulate you on this important achievement and thank you for your excellent collaboration during the application process.”
KPL Directors, Alasdair Ferguson and Colin Ortlepp along with their Head of SHEQ, Frank Davidson at KPL – acknowledged the approval and commented further, “We’re delighted to have received notification that Kishorn Port has been added to the EU’s List of Ships Recycling Facilities. It has been a great team effort. This is another important step for the Port in its development and expansion plans and will allow us to receive EU flagged floating oil & gas assets and shipping vessels for decommissioning and recycling, within our large dry dock.
Our inclusion in the list is a reflection of the high environmental standards Kishorn has as a decommissioning facility and the robustness of our management and control systems.
These were reflected in the successful decommissioning and recycling of the MV Kaami shipping vessel in 2020 and we now look forward in 2022 to accepting other vessels and floating assets from within the EU to take advantage of our fantastic facilities.”
