Alang located on the western coast of Gulf of Khambat, in the western part of India, is the largest ship-recycling yard in the world. It is approximately 50 kms southeast of Bhavnagar city in the State of Gujrat, India. Ever since its inception in 1982, Alang has emerged as one of the choicest ship-scrapping destinations for the ship owners around the world. Hundreds of ships from all over the world find their final resting place in Alang every year.
The Gulf is known for its extreme tides, which vary greatly in height and run into it with amazing speed. The Alang Ship Recycling Yard takes advantage of the extreme high tides of the gulf. Large ships are beached during the twice-monthly highest tides, and are dismantled when the tide recedes to almost zero.
There are 183 plots to carry out the ship-recycling activities which generate around 30,000 jobs in Alang itself and generate 3 million tons of recycled steel every year.
