C-Job Naval Architects is proud to announce its partnership with The Ocean Cleanup. The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organisation that has designed the first feasible method to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. C-Job will assist The Ocean Cleanup’s activities with engineering capacity and knowledge sharing.

 

 

Practical solutions for ocean cleanup

“Like The Ocean Cleanup, we are a dynamic company that shares the vision – indeed, the responsibility – to contribute to a cleaner and healthier marine environment,” comments C-Job’s Managing Director Basjan Faber. “With this in mind, what better initiative is there to work with than The Ocean Cleanup?”

Designing ships that not only meet the functional specifications of its clients, but are also as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible is at the core of C-Job’s mission. “Our engineering team is ready to support The Ocean Cleanup’s own project requirements by transferring their knowledge of sustainable and technically practical solutions.”

 

Fruitful discussions lead to passive ocean cleaning system

The Ocean Cleanup has developed a passive cleaning system that moves with ocean currents. It consists of a floater with a solid screen underneath, concentrating plastic debris, making it easy to extract and bring back to shore for recycling.

While launching several expeditions to map the degree of plastic pollution in the Pacific Ocean, The Ocean Cleanup also performed scale model tests in the North Sea. Deployment of the first cleanup system in the Pacific Ocean is scheduled to take place in Q3 of 2018.
