Proven Performance and Effective
After observing the ORCA in action alongside conventional skimmers, it became clear what the requirements for effective recovery of most pollutants including plastics, algae, marine debris and oil are:
1. relatively fool proof from clogging or jamming
2. easy to operate,
4. light weight,
Two years of R&D employing Ex-Boeing Wind Engineers and Marine Engineers, lead to the creation of the ORCA!
The ORCA has been built, sold, used and proven in the field as well as certified by ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) & Lloyds Register Type Approval. Using powerful vortex technology, the ORCA generates wind speeds of up to 180 kph like a tornado, giving it the lifting power to pull debris up its suction hose. Using the Universal Hatch Cover the hose drops plastic, algae, debris or oil directly into a receiving tank or container, without passing through any machinery, allowing large quantities to be recovered. Because the recovered material does not pass through any machinery, means the ORCA is virtually impossible to clog AND, at the same time, any wild marine life taken into the hose mouth, remains unharmed and can be safely removed from the receiving tank.
Existing skimmers are not able to cope with these elements as the recovered material passes through machinery. With the ORCA there is no machinery between the intake hose and receiving containment unit. The ORCA can cope with all these elements using its powerful Vortex technology.
Key advantages of the ORCA are:
1. It works on land as well as in a marine environment.
2. It is able to recover large volumes using its Universal Hatch Cover™.
3. It has multiple environmental applications making it a viable economic technology to own.
What is the main focus of the ORCA technology?
Deadly floating plastic, invasive algae, spilled oil.
