Why should you sell your car to scrap yards?

You have a car at your garage that has been lying there for months now. You’ve wanted it fixed but you don’t seem to have time and the money. Look here, there is a better alternative; did you know you could make some good bucks just by selling it as scrap? It doesn’t have to keep collecting dust, see below the benefits of disposing it at some value.

Selling saves space

The vehicle doesn’t have to be roadworthy or even moving; the scrappers will tow it themselves. This removes the car from the driveway or garage and thus creating space for others. In some places, having it lie at the yard would attract fines and penalties and therefore selling it saves you all these costs and the hassle. The extra space could be used to keep some other valuable item. Removing this vehicle helps in keeping off some potential health hazard caused by the fluid leaks.  The leaks were probably killing your grass and therefore you can save this and maintain the landscape aesthetics.

Helps maintain a clean environment

Any vehicle leaks are non-biodegradable and therefore any leaks would contaminate the area. Thus, scrapping the old stalled car would keep the leaks from contaminating the surrounding. Selling your car as junk will allow the parts to be re-used to get a second life.  This keeps them from fading into obsolescence or just taking up space in a landfill. Every part that is usable would be put to use and whatever …

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Ship to Ship Transfer

The rapid growth of the LNG market has been created by demand for bigger ships amidst a backdrop of high incomes and revenues. LNG ships currently being ordered are bigger some with carrying capacities of more than two hundred thousand cubic metres and summer drafts of 12m. It means that due to the size the ships cannot access the shallow ports and thus there arises a need to transfer the LNG hence, LNG ship to ship transfer.

LNG ship to ship transfer (LNG STS) is enabled by having both vessels held in position against each other while the cargo ship pumps the liquefied gas through flexible hoses. Numerous LNG ship to ship transfers take place with incidences and accidents being quite low due to the advances in technology that have made it possible to manage risks associated with the LNG STS transfer.

A vital part of all LNG STS transfer systems is the Emergency Release System (ERS). Due to advancements in safety technology, the emergency release system consists of numerous parts including the Emergency releases coupling (ERC). Usually, we have more than one ERC within the ERS. The ERC ensures that in case of an emergency the ship crew can contain the situation and isolate the operations and the cargo system. It is mandatory for all vessels to protect the environment as much as possible through preventing cargo spills. An emergency release system is ideal to achieve this as it protects the cargo hoses and the ship from damage.
