An innovative remote-controlled robotic solution for collecting marine waste.

The P&D Waste Rover is a remote-controlled marine waste robot designed to be easily carried to a work site, at just 70cm long x 70cm wide, and weighing only 18kg. The waste rover can be driven around marinas, rivers and lakes by a remote operator standing on the shore, whilst it collects floating debris into the specially designed cargo net which holds up to 80L. The collection net can also be fitted with an absorbent layer, so that hydrocarbons (oil & fuel) frequently found on the surface of harbour waters can also be collected.

Compact in size, the remote-controlled waste collector can easily access hard-to-reach, shallow areas. The unit is powered by LiFePO4 batteries, making it emission free. The P&D Waste Rover is ready to go with a 2-hour charge of the batteries, which allows 4-6 hours of operation time in the water.
