Torqeedo Powers Harbour Clean-UpThe Waste Cleaner 66 – billed as the world’s most powerful all-electric boat designed for cleaning up pollution in inland waterways and harbours – will be unveiled by EFINOR’s Sea Cleaner subsidiary at the International Nautic Boat Show in Paris-Porte de Versailles 7 to 15 December. 

The unique vessel is powered by a Torqeedo 25kW Deep Blue motor with a 40 kWh Deep Blue battery, which provides up to eight hours of endurance at a cleaning speed of two knots.

The six-metre (20-ft) aluminium boat, built at EFINOR’s shipyard in Paimpol, uses patented technology to retrieve up to 500 kg (1,100 lb) of solid waste and 1,000L (263 gal) of liquid waste, including hydrocarbons like oil or fuel spills. The patented clean-up system automatically separates water and hydrocarbons to eliminate emulsification.

The boat is designed for operation in inland waterways, harbours and coastal waters, including jetties and tight corners where access is difficult. The versatile platform can conduct suction at halt or when moving, either forward or in reverse. It can be trailered for road transport and has a single point of lifting for easy launching and recovery.

“We believe that acting locally is acting sustainably,” said Benjamin Lerondeau, CEO EFINOR Sea Cleaner. “Our teams have worked closely with Torqeedo’s engineers to create a highly efficient climate-neutral platform that meets the needs of harbours and marinas to maintain clean water while reducing their environmental impact.”

“The Waste Cleaner 66 boat is an ideal platform for electrification,” said Dr. Christoph Ballin, CEO Torqeedo.  “The Deep Blue electric motor provides the low-speed torque and maneuverability needed to capture debris from the water while emitting no noise or exhaust fumes. We are getting substantial interest in electric power from other trash-removing vessel operators around the world.”

JOIN THE LUXURY TAX OPPOSITION NOW!

 

Luxury TaxOur industry needs everyone to raise their voice in opposition to the ill-considered Liberal Luxury Tax proposal.

The NMMA has shared results from the American introduction of a luxury tax in the early 1990s and the data should help persuade our government that this will be ineffective and overall, damaging to the industry and negative to their tax revenues.
