SURUS went beyond the scrapping and managed to give a second life to more than 350 pieces of equipment in good condition, from internal signage to navigation charts and the captain’s seat. All these assets reemployed (and therefore not scrapped) were sold through a charity auction which drew more than 4200 people to Escrapalia, the platform owned by SURUS.
The revenue was given to three NGOs that aimed to transform economic value into social value. Caritas Castrense, Fundación Museo Naval and Asociación Nuestra Señora del Carmen.
