Permit plan for firm to expand
A SHIP-BREAKING firm in Swansea wants to expand its operations.
Swansea Drydocks Ltd has applied to Environment Agency Wales (EAW) to change its permit, allowing it to include a wet berth area.
If granted, the proposed extension will allow Swansea Drydocks Ltd to temporarily store vessels in the wet berth area and start stripping non-hazardous fixtures and fittings. The ships will then be fully dismantled in the dry dock area.
The application does not include a proposal to change any of the existing waste types it deals with.

Nothing will be removed from a ship in the wet berth area that could have an impact on the environment, and in particular the water within the Queen's Dock.
The EAW must assess whether the proposal will pose a risk to human health or the environment. It said it would consult groups including Swansea Council and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board.
