LITTER CLEANER - This 44m machine is designed to be operated in fleets to target ocean waste in blue water and in rivers. This present proposal is for a pilot derivation of the above machine, limited to around 16 meters in length, with an active cleaning head spanning 6.75 meters. This 1:20 model did not feature moveable wind turbines and the solar wings had limited angular movement. The proposed Pilot vessel will be around 7.5 times the size of this proof of concept machine.

 

 

Work Package 5 sees the project enter the construction phase to build the mobile platform (vessel) at full scale for the installation of B. and C.

 

The platform consists of three near identical floats. The floats support a frame onto which the energy harvesting apparatus, energy storage and the all important cleaning head and litter containment area is to be housed. This approach gives us a cost effective way of producing a litter collecting machine that is zero carbon in operation.

 

Construction will be by way of the fabrication of sub-assemblies that are assembled in logical order.

 

J. Installation of the solar and wind energy harvesting apparatus on the constructed platform in I., to include energy storage and management systems.

 

K. Installation of the marine litter harvesting apparatus on the platform in I.

 

L. Installation of motor drives, storage batteries, rudders, and other ship systems on I.

 

M. Installation of control sensors, navigation instruments and computers on I., to include wiring.

 

N. Other fitting out of I. by specialist subcontractors.

Divided into ten Work Packages (WPs), COF’s project structure aims to harness the potential of each individual partner and at the same time promote collaboration within a consortium of expert organizations, while also covering all its research, technology and management objectives.

 

 

PARTNERS WORKING ON THIS WP

 

TBA, post Agreement as set out in Letter of Intent for the purposes of cementing the consortium.

 

 

 

SOLAR VAWT PLATFORM - This 16m (LWL) design features a collecting head approximately 6.75 meters wide and a 20 ton storage capacity. The machine is solar and wind powered for sustainable long endurance tours of duty. In this case featuring vertical axis wind turbines. 

 

 

 

12 METER - In this diagram we see how a cleaning head at the operating end of this vessel (shown in red on the left) might be incorporated as part of a dedicated litter collecting machine. This design has limited storage and energy harvesting capacity, hence may not fare as well in operations over six months.

PROBLEMFrom 2000 to 2012, the National Marine Fisheries Service reported an average of 11 large whales entangled in ghost nets every year along the US west coast. From 2002 to 2010, 870 nets were recovered in Washington (state) with over 32,000 marine animals trapped inside. Ghost gear is estimated to account for 10% of all marine litter.
