The new head of Norwegian green recycling consultant Grieg Green wants to expand the niche as shipowners feel increasing pressure to plan for scrapping from the very start of a vessel’s life.

“I have not started yet and it’s just ideas at this stage, but we do have plans to grow. The company has been in business for over 10 years now and has not added a lot of new services,” said Pia Meling.

She will begin work in October at Grieg Group in Oslo, where group chief executive Elisabeth Grieg also has her base.
