Safe, competitive and enabling circular shipping: that is the CMT solution. From the largest ocean going vessels to clean steel plates in a matter of days through innovation in process and technology.


The CMT Diacutron at the CMT yard

CMT has developed an innovative combination of process and technology, to dismantle ships with mechanized and automated system. This consists of a pre-engineered, sequential, industrialized set of systems, techniques and methods.

The CMT Diacutron is the first stage of the ship dismantling process, reducing the size of the ship without people in the proximity of the process. The CMT Diacutron cuts the ship into slices and blocks by the deployment of a huge cutting wire, especially developed for this purpose only.

The cutting is accompanied by huge volumes of water, which is constantly recycled after usage. Circularity is the main driver of all CMT systems and facilities at the CMT yard are working closely together.


Designed to dismantle the largest ship

The CMT yard is an integrated process of techniques, systems, methods and equipment, designed to dismantle the largest ship, fully automated and mechanized. The process is engineered to allow very high throughput of ships per year and reduce each ship to only basic materials such as clean small steel, regular scrap, clean assorted non-ferrous, clean assorted inert materials and the liquid and solid waste materials from the ships is processed at the CMT yard and converted into basic gasses to produce electricity, LNG and or H2.
