The video shows the scrapping of the freight ship Norbjørn. Before the scrapping the ship was made ready and the wheelhouse, cranes and other iron elements were dismantled in order to reach the weight of ca. 880 tons. (The maximum capacity of the gantry crane at Lindoe). Thus, the large gantry crane was able to crane the 77 m. long and 13 m. wide ship 45 m. up in the air.

“The task was very exciting and no doubt the first time a ship was scrapped in this way”, says Morten Lind Jensen, product manager. He continues, “As a recycling company this gives us the opportunity to show our customers, that the gantry crane at Lindoe and the surrounding area are evident to carry out tasks of this type and we have now shown that it is possible”.
