The Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Marine Service Co., Ltd plant, with one of the largest capacities of China’s ship recycling facilities, was established as a repair yard, but with ship recycling being carried out on its 500,000m2 site and repair use dry docks, with an estimated annual recycling capability of 1,000,000 LDT (Light Displacement Tons).

The yard's Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP) is required by the competent authorities when authorizing a Ship Recycling Facility to be in compliance with the Hong Kong International Convention. In its capacity as an independent third party organisation, ClassNK confirmed that the SRFP met the requirements of the convention, and that the facility is carrying out recycling according to its SRFP.

This was the second issuance of an SOC for the Hong Kong Convention; the first was issued to Jiangmen Zhongxin Shipbreaking & Steel Co., Ltd. by ClassNK in December 2012.
