About Grieg Green

Grieg Green is part of the Grieg Star Group which has over 130 years of maritime experience. It offers ship owners an alternative to the controversial “beaching” method to demolish ships. Grieg Green buys ships from ship owners and sells them to contracted recycling yards in Turkey in China. These yards ensure sustainable demolition with no negative impact on workers and the environment.

Grieg Green's needs

This requires substantial financial means. In addition Grieg Green wants to act quickly when a ship owner wants to recycle a ship. So the owner has an alternative to beaching that is financially and operationally viable.
