Chattogram-based PHP Ship Breaking & Recycling Industries has made history in the Bangladesh recycling industry by taking delivery of a multipurpose general cargo ship from Japanese shipping giant NYK.

The Mohammed Zahirul Islam-led recycling facility will recycle the 9,400-dwt Kamo (built 1998) in line with the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships (Hong Kong Convention), with the process supervised by a specialist team from NYK.
