JRD Industries is a Ship Recycling Yard,

operating in Alang, the state of Gujarat, India. Our group is one of the oldest and most experiences ship recyclers in India having dismantled hundreds of vessels over 4 decades in all the ship recycling ports in India.


By definition, Recycling implies the use again of the recycled object or its constituents in the original form with minimum alteration. Clearly, Ship demolition, as it is carried out in the subcontinent in general and India in particular, ensures the maximum possible reuse of the constituents of the ship being dismantled with minimum alteration when compared to ship demolition carried out anywhere else, globally. Such reuse is possible because India has a robust second-hand market for virtually everything arising from the ship; be it in the marine, industrial or household sectors. This unique characteristic makes Ship Demolition in India the closest one can get to Ship Recycling.

Creating an eco-friendly yard

Our History

To this existing advantage, we now add the highest possible standards of Ship Recycling in terms of environment, health, and safety. JRD has signed up with NKCS, Japan and GSR, Germany to create the yard infrastructure and processes which enables best in class health and safety standards together with proper environmental protection and waste management systems. The yard has been successfully audited by class NK and has received a SOC (statement of Compliance ) of Hong Kong convention on safe recycling ( HKC ). Shipowners can be confident that their ships will be RECYCLED to Globally Acceptable Ship Recycling Standards and simultaneously with the Sub Continental Advantage of reusing the maximum portion of the vessel possible in its original form, resulting in the best possible solution to disposing of their ships in a manner which is ecologically beneficial and makes economic sense too.
