Siqura’s marine dome camera will assist The Ocean Cleanup foundation in its work in the Pacific Ocean starting mid-2018. The Ocean Cleanup decided to choose Siqura’s camera after a competitive selection process. Siqura sponsors their valuable work on this project by providing this state-of-the-art technology at a discounted price.
Across the globe, ocean-borne trash has accumulated in five so-called ‘ocean garbage patches’. The largest of these is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch located between Hawaii and San Francisco, California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean. The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of its systems is estimated to clean up 50 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch within five years.
