Beach Boulevard, Stratford, Conn. 06497. $14-Million Scrapping
Facility To Be Built
In Netherlands Antilles
Paul Loewenthal, U.S. Econom- ic Commissioner for the Nether- lands Antilles, recently announced that his government and West
Germany's Eisen Und Metal A.G. have signed an agreement in prin- ciple for a $14-million, ship-break- ing scrap yard in Curacao that will produce 85,000 tons of steel a year for the Latin American market. Construction of the fa- cility will begin in early 1981.
According to Mr. Loewenthal, the Netherlands Antilles Govern- ment will provide $7 million for the necessary infrastructure in- cluding piers and access roads, plus 85 percent of the cost of an additional $7 million for equip- ment. To be located in the harbor of Willemstad, the yard will em- ploy from 185 to 270 workers, depending on the ship breakage methods used. Additional jobs will be created in such related activ- ities as preparing the vessels for scrapping.
Eisen Und Metal A.G., which has been active since the 1920s in the ship-breaking industry, is owned by three German compa- nies—Hoescht/Estel, Mannes- mann, and Rheinmetall, each hold- ing a one-third equity.
Present plans call for the es- tablishment of two separate com- panies in the Netherlands Antilles —a production company that will scrap the ships, in which the Gov- ernment would have a majority of shares; and a trading company that will buy the vessels, market the resultant scrap metal, and be involved in other commercial ac- tivities. The trading company would be a joint venture, owned equally by the Netherlands An- tilles Government and Eisen Und
