Safe Harbor marinas join Seabin Project

Nov 30, 2017 by Triton Staff

Safe Harbor Marinas, based in Dallas, Texas, has joined the Seabin Project as aglobal pilot partner and plans to introduce the innovative anti-pollution devices at the marinas it operates throughout the United States.

The V5 Seabin is a 2-pound floating vacuum-filter device made of recycled plastic mesh that continuously collects floating debris and pollutants – such as plastic bottles, paper, oil, fuel, detergent and surface oil – from port and marina waters. Each bucket-sized pump collects about 60 pounds of debris a day, according to a company statement.

Seabin was developed by Australian surfers Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, inspired by a shared passion for protecting the world’s oceans and waterways.

“It’s versatile, small in size, cost-effective and highly effective – everything our marinas and their boat owners have been asking for,” Kate Pearson, Safe Harbor’s West Coast regional vice president, stated. “Most importantly, Seabin’s operation does not adversely affect marine life in any way.”

Safe Harbor has tested Seabins at its Cabrillo Isle Marina in San Diego for the past nine months, and by year’s end they will be installed at its other four West Coast marinas. The company plans to expand the rollout in 2018 to more than 60 additional marinas across the country, including five in Florida.
