Spanish marinas use water-cleaning robot

Marina Ibiza and Marina Port de Mallorca are the first ports in Spain to use a water-cleaning robot. The device, called Geneseas, travels over the water surface capturing pollutant waste whilst also continually analysing the water quality.

Geneseas Marina Ibiza

At present, there is no other ports in Spain using this new waste collection system. It proves that both Marina Port de Mallorca and Marina Ibiza, which belong to the same group, are committed to caring for the marine environment, an aspect that forms a major part of their environmental policy.

It is controlled remotely using a joystick from land and the area it needs to clean can be programmed automatically or manually via an easy-to-use phone app. Its solar panels permit 100% sustainable operation.

Using the app Geneseas, the device can be programmed to travel over the entire surface of the port water and clean in automatic mode or in manual mode. It has a 140-litre capture capacity.

The device has two main functions. Firstly, it cleans waste on the water surface via a suction system that securely collects floating micro and macro plastics and floating oil with a recyclable filter created with natural fibres. Secondly, it controls and monitors the water quality, checking its physical/chemical parameters: pH, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, redox and other data. These parameters are logged in real time and by location thanks to the integrated GPS system, making the data easy to analyse via its app.

Its operation is also adapted to use renewable energies, permitting its battery to be recharged using solar energy via its solar panels, as well as having a conventional electrical charging system.

With the water-cleaning surface robot, Marina Ibiza and Marina Port de Mallorca have added yet another measure to their environmental and marine preservation programme. Able to clean the water remotely, it is a useful tool for analysing the water quality in real time - a major step forward in efforts to care for the flora and fauna of the Balearics.

In addition to this, both marinas possess several and environmental certifications, such as the Blue Flag, the Carbon Footprint Registry, EMAS and ISO 14001 with the 5-Star Marina classification by the IMCI, primarily for its continuing environmental strategy policy.
