BM has the best Infrastructure to support EU SRR standards. The company has successfully installed an Offshore Crane, with a capacity of 150 Metric Tons, in the middle of the sea. Moreover, a 250 Metric Ton crawler crane has been installed near the Jetty to lift all the blocks directly from the ship to the impermeable floor. Baijnath Melaram, with the help of their experienced team, has been able to also employ new techniques to recycle a ship and also cater to the problem of primary cut being in the intertidal zone. Using this technique, Zero contact will be made with the intertidal zone while dismantling a ship.
Baijnath Melaram is the only company in the Indian Sub-continent to have successfully completed a vessel without having touched the inter-tidal zone.
