Turkish ship recyclers are scrapping a pipelay vessel no longer wanted by Allseas Group.

The Swiss offshore engineering contractor sold the 10,643-gt Calamity Jane (built 1978) to ship EU-approved ship recycler Leyal Demtas Gemi Sokum at Aliaga in early November for an undisclosed sum.

TradeWinds understands that the ship has been beached and demolition work has begun.

The scrapping of the Calamity Jane leaves Allseas with five pipelay vessels in a 11-ship fleet that includes a drillship and large platform supply vessels.
