Circular decommissioning & sustainability
In the coming decades, hundreds of marine and offshore structures and installations, ranging from platforms to ships and wind turbines, will reach the end of their life cycle. Sagro Decom is working on the challenge of finding ever smarter, better and more sustainable ways to dismantle large marine objects & offshore installations. We play a crucial role in the transition to the circular economy.
By the dismantling and high-grade reuse of equipment and raw materials, we provide the final link in the material-recycling circuit.
We focus on high-quality reuse of the materials that are released. We work according to the principle of the ‘R-ladder’. The R-ladder indicates the degree of recyclability. The higher a certain item is on the R-ladder, the more ‘circular’ it is:

We have at our disposal an extensive, global network which allows machines and components to be given a second life and directly reused, either recycled as another application or dismantled with the recovered parts being reprocessed for other purposes (R3 and R4).
Any remaining material is delivered to waste-collection units or authorised end-users and recycled as raw materials in the new production process (R5).
The environmental barometer shows that a large percentage of the environmental burden is created by work equipment. We make every effort to significantly reduce this percentage. One of the ways we do this is by using electric equipment. We have several types of electric equipment (mini cranes, wheelbarrows and sorting cranes), but our fleet of vehicles is also rapidly becoming electrified.
For our own energy needs, we have, in the past few years, installed solar panels on several large roofs of our production halls. In 2018, 3 of our own wind turbines were put into operation (producing 14 MW of power by 2020). Thanks to these solar roofs and our wind turbines, we are able to offset more than 100% of our CO2 emissions. We power several pieces of equipment (including our wood and rubble crusher) with our own green electricity.
We would love to speak with you.
