On 12th December, a meeting of the expert Working Group of the project "Green Shipyard in Poland" was held in Szczecin. The meeting was organised by the National Chamber of Commerce in Warsaw at the Maritime University of Szczecin.

The group was established this year and its task is to support the implementation of the project involving construction of a shipyard for disposal of old vessels.

The need to scrap vessels in compliance with the EU regulations is to increase in the future. Poland has adopted an ambitious plan for reconstruction of the shipyard industry and, thus, it is advisable in the present situation that solutions be introduced using a part of the existing post-shipyard resources for creation of an economic undertaking which would aid the disposal of ships of various sizes in accordance with the EU standards, i.e. the creation of the so called "green shipyard" - as a supplement to the development plans of shipyard production.
