Unusual drydock

And unlike Alang et al, a much more environmentally friendly way of dismantling ships

Just been granted permission to make the dock bigger too, removing 400,000t of rock from the back of the cutting and allowing bigger ships and more importantly, bigger topsides to fit in.
Impressive set up, better than the running the ship up the beach, ok they are tad bigger. wonder how much they charge and safety on the pumps to keep it dry!
