Ship deconstruction, scrapping and recycling (DSR) on the ex-HMAS Success has commenced at the Whyalla Port.
RDAWEP initiated the ship recycling opportunity for Whyalla through its Heavy Industry Cluster activities, including introducing the concept to McMahons during the Arrium administration process. RDAWEP believes that the demand for this service is very strong and that it can potentially be a major asset to the steel making facility. A similar idea was first mooted in the late 1990s by a group of passionate Whyalla advocates.
The photos below show the ex-HMAS Success arriving at Whyalla; and preparing the Slipway.
