Shipbreaking yard landscape

Ship breaking yard is a place where ship disposal process takes place. Breaking up of ships for either a source of parts, which can be sold for re-use, or for the extraction of raw materials is performed by thousands of low paid workers. Ships decomposition has been considered as one of the most dangerous workplace in the world. Environment pollution, lack of law, insurance and safety regulations, lack specialized tools and equipment, harsh weather conditions, lack of running water, heavy physical work, that's only a few points related to Ship Breaking Yards.
