OCEAN ROVER CLEANING APPARATUS
FIGHTING PLASTIC POLLUTION
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: coastal waterways.
HOW IT WORKS
The O.R.C.A. Piranha has been strategically engineered to pull plastics from the coastal waterways. By skimming marina facilities, the rover will be able to collect 300 lbs. of waste per 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.
WATER QUALITY DATA
SUSTAINABLE AND SAFE
While The O.R.C.A. Piranha is collecting trash and other debris from marinas and near shore waterways, it will also be collecting mass amounts of water quality data. The rover will track metrics like:
PH and more.
The O.R.C.A. PIRANHA we will be able to guide the itself anywhere in the marina using autonomous self-driving technology 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. Piranha is 100% electric and uses obstacle avoidance software to stay out of boaters and marine lifes way.
