About us

Description
LEYAL Ship Recycling Ltd. is among the leading ship recycling companies in Turkey. Established in the early 1980s, the Company has evolved to become the owner of one of the most well know European ship recycling companies capable of directly or indirectly processing up to 100,000 tons -nominal capacity- of steel per year. LEYAL is fully licensed for its ship recycling operations by the relevant competent authorities in Turkey, namely the Ministry of Environment and Forests, the Undersecretariat of Maritime Affairs, and the Ministry of Labour and Social Security (in Turkey the three Ministries jointly regulate the ship recycling industry).

The Company’s recycling facilities are located near the city of Aliaga on Turkey’s Aegean coast, approximately 60 Km North of the port of Izmir. The surrounding area is a well-established industrial province (the largest in Turkey) also including two ports, an LNG terminal, power generation plant, a major refinery and petrochemical complex. Aliaga is also home to a number of major steel mills (Turkey is the world’s No. 10 steel producer in 2010) and provides easy access to facilities dealing with downstream waste management.

Turkey, apart from being a European Union Associate Member, is the only OECD country with a well-established ship recycling industry. LEYAL was the first European ship recycling company to apply the European Union Notification Procedure for the Transboundary Movement of Waste (EU Regulation 259/93, amended to 1013/2006), in the case of the recycling of the German Navy destroyer Rommel in 2004. LEYAL’s commitment to its workers and to the environment is paramount, having an excellent record for worker safety and environmental protection, and abiding to the most strict national and international regulations.

LEYAL is also proud to have been contracted for the recycling of the most high profile vessel to ever arrive to Turkey for recycling in the case of British Navy the aircraft carrier HMS Invincible in 2011. Furthermore in recent years LEYAL has also been the recycling facility of choice for a number of other high profile projects such as a 150,000 deadweight FPSO from a European oil major (the first and only FPSO to have been recycled in Turkey) in 2007, the three British Navy Type 42 destroyers HMS Cardiff / HMS-Newcastle / HMS Glasgow in 2008 and 2009, the 40,000 deadweight tanker Shiraz from a major deepwater offshore energy company from the USA in 2009, and the 50,000 deadweight RFA-Oakleaf also from the British Navy in 2010.

In 2006, LEYAL became the first ship recycling company in Turkey to be awarded ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification by a leading British assessment, verification and certification body accredited by both UKAS and ANSI-ASQ.
