P&D Marine Group, leaders in the supply of marine, industrial and trailer equipment, has become the sole distributor for the P&D Waste Rover ‘Jellyfish’ which is designed and produced by French company IADYS.
Both companies have been at Seawork this week demonstrating the remote-control machine waste robot and showing the ease with which it can be operated. Significantly smaller from other similar models (at just 70cm long x 70cm wide and weighing in at just 18kg) the Waste Rover can be used to clean up marina, rivers and lakes collecting floating waste and debris into the specially designed cargo net which holds an impressive 80l. It affectively eats up debris and can get to really hard to reach areas, including between boats and under pontoons.
What makes the robot even more practical is the capability for users to direct the product remotely, so it can be used in many situations where closer direct control is not possible (1,300ft range).
The product is designed to improve water quality, remove oil and chemicals, make a positive contribution to the ecosystem, reduce user’s exposure to waste, and hire and purchase options are available.
Damian Voursiquot from IADYS comments, “The device has a working time of 6 – 8 hours and a charge time of about 2 hours, so it can be used in the water a lot. It can be tele-operated and also autonomously. Using GPS technology and Geofencing you can select an area for it to work in it will stay there and collect all the waste.
“The product is mainly used by ports and marinas but can also be used for oil collection, so it can be used widespread across the industry. It’s been great to come to Seawork with P&D Marine Group who are distributing the product for us in the UK. It’s created a lot of interest at the show which is very encouraging.”
