World Leaders in Waterway Cleanup

A Simple Mission

Provide cost effective, efficient solutions to help clean up our marine environment.

Over 200 of our debris collection and trash retrieval boats operate around the world, combating the growing tide of plastics in our seas including Hong Kong, New York, Cape Town, Kuwait, and London.

Our range of workboats have been developed to offer users a versatile, multi-purpose craft that can perform a wide range of duties in addition to efficient aquatic trash and debris removal.

The Versi-Cat is extremely adaptable for a huge range of applications ranging from fast-response to pollution control needs, to mobile pump out  service, mooring lifting (with removable lifting frame), diving and maintenance support. This vessel really earns her keep!

The design incorporates a variety of 'pods' that sit between the twin hulls enabling many tasks to be undertaken. The pod system allows heavy items to be loaded directly onto the quayside and lifted onto the vessel via a crane with no need to manhandle the equipment to the water.

Marine Litter and Trash Collection

The Versi-Cat's principle function is the efficient collection of litter, debris and aquatic vegetation from the water surface into a removable basket, which can be lifted and tipped directly into a skip or shore side receptacle for disposal. The design allows floatables as well as semi-submerged debris to simply collect between the hulls without any complex equipment or machinery. When not in collection mode the basket can be winched up to ensure good transit speeds, and the system can even be operated with the deck plates in position. The 7m and 8m hulls offer a spacious working deck area with room for waste sorting.

Load Carrying

The Cargo Pod is designed specifically for transporting up to 1 tonne of cargo and equipment for use on or off the water. The pod can be craned in and out of the Versi-Cat empty or full, allowing the operator to keep a range of pre-configured pods on hand for jobs such as discrete mobile pump-out and grey water storage, wash down and waste disposal. Harbour operators can efficiently service boats on berth or at anchor with their liquid and solid waste disposal requirement and flexible storage options include built in holding tanks or portable IBC containers.

Electric Propulsion

Using the latest technology, we can now offer fully electric propulsion for our Versi-Cat trash skimmer vessels. This allows our customers to benefit from considerably lower maintenance and running costs as well as zero emissions operation.

 

 

 

Optional Fully Electric Propulsion

Reliable, whisper quiet and powerful.

Trash skimming made easy

Simplistic, rugged and easy to operate. The Versi-Cat provides cost effective solutions to keeping your water system free from plastic pollution.

Cargo Carrying

Not only a trash skimmer, but with the ability to carry up to 1000kg of cargo, the Versi-Cat truly is a versatile vessel. Ideally suited to mobile pump-out and other operations requiring a large working platform and load carrying ability.

Large working platform

Deck Plates can be quickly and easily installed by the operator to create a large working platform. Individual deck segments may also be removed to create a ‘moon pool’ configuration. Ideal for carrying out various maintenance tasks around the marine environment.
