ABERDEEN-headquartered metal waste recycling and processing company, John Lawrie Metals Ltd, has announced the successful completion of a first-of-its-kind project in partnership with Kishorn Port Limited (KPL).

The job involved the downsizing and recycling of the MV Kaami, a general cargo vessel recovered six miles off the North West coast of Skye after running aground in March.

John Lawrie’s team, from its Evanton base in Easter Ross, along with project support from the Aberdeen office, successfully carried out decommissioning work including the downsizing of the full structure within six weeks.

A total of 1,200 tonnes of material has been recovered which has now already been shipped for processing and recycling.

Dave Weston, John Lawrie Metals Ltd managing director, commented: “We are delighted to have collaborated with Kishorn Port on this project, the first of many that will no doubt come to the port.

“After years of planning and numerous discussions with the team at KPL, it is amazing to think that we have finally assisted them in completing this first successful project.”

Alasdair Ferguson, Kishorn Port director, said: “We are delighted with the completion of this very successful dismantle, reuse and recycle of the MV Kaami in the dry dock at Kishorn.

“Our partners in this project, decommissioning experts John Lawrie have been excellent and truly professional to work with from day one.”
