What’s a Seabin?
The V5 Seabin unit is a floating debris interception device designed to be installed in the water of marinas, Yacht Clubs, ports and any water body with a calm environment and services available.
IF WE CAN HAVE RUBBISH BINS ON LAND, WHY NOT HAVE THEM IN THE OCEAN
What can the Seabin catch?
The Seabin can catch an estimated 1.5 Kgs of floating debris per day (depending on weather and debris volumes) including microplastics up to 2 mm small.
1/2 TONS of debris/year
How does it work?
Water is sucked in from the surface and passes through a catch bag in side the Seabin, with a submersible water pump capable of displacing 25.000 Lph (liters per hour), plugged directly into 110/220 V outlet. The water is then pumped back into the marina leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag.
How to maintain the Seabin?
The catch bag can hold up to 20 Kgs of debris and it is advised to be checked twice a day and emptied as needed. The Seabin needs to be cleaned at least once per month and to be checked regularly.
Where to place it?
The Seabin is installed in a specific “Debris problem area” in the marina on a floating dock. This strategic positioning enables the wind and the currents to push the debris directly to the Seabin.
How much does the Seabin cost?
Currently the water pump energy consumption is around €1 per day
