SAS are proud of our efforts and standards in environment concerning activities. We produce hundreds of tonnes of metal punchings each year, but rather than melting these down and causing additional carbon emissions, we supply them for an alternative method of recycling to Metalast Limited, helping reduce the carbon footprint. Metalast Limited has been established and trading since November 2009, recognised as one of the leading companies in the UK and Europe, producing ‘Bespoke Variable Heavy Density Ballast & Counterweight Products’. Through its roots in the ship and boat building sectors their current markets include Offshore Marine, Civil Engineering and Earth Moving Equipment to name but a few. 150 tonnes of our punchings were utilised early this year as ballast for Edda Passat, an Offshore Support Vessel built in Spain. Metalast’s Varidense Ballast Product is entirely environmentally friendly and supports our ISO 14001 accreditation.
