SeaCleaner range: the first "zero emission" boats to clean ports and swimming areas

Description
Electric boat powered by solar energy and remote controlled crafts to remove floating garbage in port and bathing areas

With over 20 years experience in the solar electric boats for passenger transport and aware of the increasing floating waste, particularly in port or bathing areas, Grove Boats launches a cleaning boat running on electrical energy supplied by the sun, in short a "clean, cleaning boat". While navigating in a given area, this unit collects floating waste (plastics, polystyrene, algae, wood ...) and stores it on board in a dedicated container. A mechanism for the skimming of hydrocarbons is available as an option. The standard construction is made of aluminum and the option of environmentally friendly materials (flax hulls & sandwich cork) makes the process "clean boat" coherent as a whole.
