O.R.C.A.

OCEAN ROVER CLEANING APPARATUS

FIGHTING PLASTIC POLLUTION

WHY O.R.C.A.

The O.R.C.A. rover is the first of its kind. Through testing and prototyping we will bring The O.R.C.A. to our seas as soon as possible. O.R.C.A. will be the first to fight plastic pollution at its source: The Gyres.

DETAILS

HOW IT WORKS

The O.R.C.A.  has been strategically engineered to pull plastics from the oceans. By skimming the surface the rover will be able to collect 2,000 tons of waste in just one trip.

 

The O.R.C.A. finds the trash in the water and uses a conveyor belt to pull it up and inside the machine. This allows it to hold all of the trash in the dumpster and be compressed to maximize volume. The rover uses duct propellers to steer and drive its way through the water. 

LARGE IN SIZE

AUTONOMOUS TECHNOLOGY

SUSTAINABLE AND SAFE

The Oceans are big and there is an estimated 8 million metric tons of waste in them.

 

Thats why O.R.C.A. has dimensions of:

  • 60 feet long

  • 60 feet wide

  • 20 feet tall

Using autonomous software in The O.R.C.A. we will be able to guide the rover anywhere in the ocean for reliable and unmanned cleanups. 

We care about the environment just as much as we care about saving it. That's why The O.R.C.A. runs on solar power for 0 emissions and is equipped with an electro magnetic field to harmlessly steer fish from the rover.

O.R.C.A. PROTOTYPE 1

FUNCTIONALITY

O.R.C.A. Prototype 1 is a fully functional proof of concept model equipped with:

- Solar

- Circuitry

- Functioning Conveyor System

- Hull System

- Propulsion

PERFORMANCE

Prototype 1 was able to pick up:

- Plastic Bags

- Plastic Bottles

- Sit Level At Intended Water Line

- Belt was able to carry and hold up to 5 lbs. of Weight

MOVING FORWARD

Prototype 1 was a great proof of concept model. Moving forward we will be seeking funding to scale up to a 1/10th scale prototype that is Identical to a full scale model 

Prototype 2 will include all finalized materials, computers, and functionality pieces to be seen in the O.R.C.A.
