Last B & W new construction sold for scrap

Last B & W new construction sold for scrap

The very last ship that was constructed on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen, Ever Mighty, has sailed its last voyage. The voyage went from Haldia in India to Chittagong in Bangladesh, where the ship is now being made into recycled materials.

Burmeister&Wain shipyard new construction no. 957 was delivered March 20, 1996 and then shipbuilding on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen ceased. Before that, B&W Shipyard struggled to survive in a strained market and the restrictions on financial opportunities.

Jens Stephensen - and his predecessors in the post - tried to argue that 1,000 new ships should be constructed every year. B&W in Copenhagen should just construct four to five of the many ships to keep the factory. Jens Stephensen also used arguments that the amount that was spent on art support in Denmark, could easily keep a shipyard as B&W going, and that he also considered constructions from the shipyard as art - installation art.

It did not help so they had to close shop and send the last of the famous B&W workers home.
