GLOBAL REVIEW 2019 – The Year of the Environment The year 2019 was undeniably a year that saw increasing public focus on the environment – a trend that is certain to continue and further gather pace. With extra scrutiny on plastic waste in the oceans and more solidly built installations to withstand hurricane-force winds, the marina industry has responded accordingly. Here are Marina World’s top picks for environmental innovations in 2019: • French companies Recyclamer and IADYS launched innovative solar powered floating devices that collect solid and liquid waste on the water. • Dutch company RanMarine Technology put a new clean-up robot called WasteShark into service. The nifty remote-controlled ‘predator’ eats plastics, microplastics, litter and algae, consuming 500kg of floating debris in a regular working day. • Cesme Marina in Turkey introduced 1.5 million squid in and around Izmir and Cesme as a response to the threat to the species posed by pollution and irregular hunting methods. • Rolec Services launched WallPod EV SolarCharge; a new solar powered electric vehicle charging unit. • ThruFlow went into full production with its Sol decking panel – a solar panel integrated into its composite decking. With 12 volts, two amps and 24 Watts, one panel can power a small boatlift. The concept introduces solar modules, energy storage and power distribution into a floating dock that can be walked upon like any other. • Seijsener worked with a Dutch marina operator to develop a plant cart made from ... plants. • Poralu completed the first large high altitude floating Jellyfishbot, the innovative robotic clean-up solution from French company IADYS (above) and WallPod EV SolarCharge introduced by Rolec EV (below). solar park in the Alps, which is expected to generate over 800,000 kWh of electricity each year; the annual consumption of around 220 households. • VVW Nieuwpoort in Belgium revealed results of its boat recycling initiative, which aims to promote the circular economy by using shredded polyester from boats to make construction materials.
