The Breaking Yards

Void Station

The Breaking Yards are one of the very few shipyards in the Expanse, it’s unique position gives it a constantly refreshing supply of wrecked void ships, washed in on the Warp tides.
It was created by the Rogue Trader Iridas Holden to form a massive recycling and shipbuilding empire in the Expanse, his plan failed and he was killed in the ensuing mutiny.
Now the yards are a hellish industrial prison with a staggering mortality rate from the dangers of scraping damaged voidships.

It consist of two areas, the Receiving Yard, a 30 km long void station, this is where ship parts are sold and wrecks inspected. And the Breaking Yard, build across a 3,500 km patch of asteroids, anchored together with chains and corridors of scrap.

Inhabitants:
The people of the Breaking Yards are wretched and hollowed eyed, the work they do is incredibly dangerous and their equipment is sorely lacking.

Facilities:
It is a massive Voidship scrapyard, almost any components can be bought here and installed. Also crippled vessels brought here (a risky prospect with a gravity tides) can be efficiently torn apart for salvage.

Defences:
The vast amounts of scrap here mean that the yards are defended by numerous macrobatteries and lances stripped from ruined ships. In addition the locals can muster a small flotilla of salvaged raiders to fight off attackers.
Of course the natural dangers of the SR-651 ensure that they are rarely the targets of raiders.
