World’s 1st Ocean Cleanup System Launched(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
- Sep 10, 2018-
The cleanup system, named System 001, is heading to a location 240 nautical miles offshore for a two-week trial before continuing its journey toward the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, 1,200 nautical miles offshore, to start the cleanup.
System 001 is being towed from the San Francisco Bay by the vessel Maersk Launcher, provided to the project by Danish Maersk Group and DeepGreen, its current charter holder.
The system consists of a 600-meter-long U-shaped floating barrier with a three-meter skirt attached below. The system is designed to be propelled by wind and waves, allowing it to passively catch and concentrate plastic debris in front of it. Due to its shape, the debris will be funnelled to the center of the system. Moving slightly faster than the plastic, the system will act like a giant Pac-Man, skimming the surface of the ocean.(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
Eco hopper provides a series of square hoppers to hold a grab capacity of 1 to 37 cubic meters. Each hopper size has a corresponding high or low level frame, depending on the choice of discharge equipment. Because all our standard jumpers follow the same design principles, component modules can be standardized to reduce production period.
Eco dust hopper equipped with a simple and effective dust-proof system to minimize dust flying during grab operating. Hopper is divided into inside and outside, separated by elastic rubber dust isolation device. The main function of the outer hopper is to receive cargoes from grabs.(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
