A full-scale prototype of DeltaSea, a new marine debris collection system, has been successfully tested in Vancouver, Canada.

As informed, the testing, conducted in December 2019, has validated all of the key operating parameters of the technology and verified the engineering models that will be utilized for the supply of future operating units.

The technology is being developed by Technika Engineering Ltd., a company based in Calgary, Canada, for the purpose of collecting plastics and other marine debris from water surfaces. It will also be adapted for the purpose of cleaning oil and chemical spills in ports, terminals, reservoirs, resorts and coastal cities.

Technika Engineering is now completing the development of the system in an effort to make it available for commercial operations in 2020.
