The oceans urgently need a helping hand. Fortunately, the solution is within reach. Meet SeaProtectorOne – an intelligent mechanical arm that picks up floating plastic waste from our rivers before it can cause further pollution in our oceans.


A helping hand for the world’s oceans

The waste islands in the oceans are piling up and wildlife is giving way to unimaginable amounts of essentially non-degradable plastic waste. We are well past the last call. The clean-up work in the world's oceans is already close to unmanageable. If this development is to be stopped, appropriate and immediate action must be taken. Fortunately, we have the solution.

Meet SeaProtectorOne – an intelligent system that picks up floating plastic waste from our rivers and streams before it can cause further pollution in our oceans. The solution has been carefully considered and tested down to the smallest detail with the involvement of independent experts – and developed with a focus on simplicity, durability and accessibility.

The technology

Complex problems require intelligent solutions

If we are to tackle the problem of pollution once and for all, it is vital that everyone with the will and desire gets an opportunity to lend a helping hand to the world's oceans. Simplicity and accessibility have therefore been key words in our product development from the start.

Consisting of a vertical tower installed on the river bank, with a horizontal mechanical arm and filter unit able to extend more than 40 metres, SeaProtectorOne can be installed almost anywhere. The arm automatically adapts to the water level and continuously collects waste that floats by, transporting it safely to a container on land, where it can be easily disposed of correctly when the system sends a message stating that it is full.

The system is fully automated and able to operate independently without the need for an operator. With the help of a number of intelligent sensors, the system continuously adapts to changing water and weather conditions, and automatically withdraws into a safety position if the weather becomes rough or larger objects are on a collision course.

Since I became involved in the work with marine plastic pollution in 2007, SeaProtectorOne is the best prospect of an effective method for collecting plastic and reducing marine plastic pollution that I have seen. The new design thinking, with a focus on efficiency, flexibility in terms of location, scalability in terms of size, automation and the measures taken to avoid adverse effects on wildlife in rivers, makes the solution a potential game-changer.

Operation and maintenance

A universal solution to a global problem

When we refer to ourselves as All In On Green, we really mean it. We do not just go all in with everything we have and know. We believe that the best solution is also the one that ensures that everyone with the will and desire gets an opportunity to be part of the solution – no matter where in the world they are.

That is why SeaProtectorOne and everything the solution is able and required to accomplish has been carefully considered down to the smallest detail – so you only have to act.

Operating the solution requires no special training, and all mechanical parts are both easy to replace and developed with simplicity, durability and accessibility in mind. For example, all hardware and software components are universally available. The only thing required to get the system up and running is access to a 400v power outlet.
