The 32,000 ton French aircraft carrier Le Clemenceau was towed into a breakers' yard on Tees-side last week to be dismantled by Able UK. Able has a lot of experience in dismantling ships, oil rigs and power stations. Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth have commended the plans which Able say they have to break up the Clemenceau in an environmentally responsible way. Studies indicate that, like the Hartlepool power station next door, the dry dock co-habits happily with the waders in the nature reserve across the water.    [Source: Sunday Telegraph Comment, 15 February 2009]                       [ Frank  |  15 February 2009 ]
