Self Unloading, Trash Skimmer Boat designed for cleaning marinas, lakes, rivers, seas, ports, canals, bays, harbors, and waterways, built-in series to the proven reliable standard design high-quality standardized components and equipment.

Mavi Deniz is a market leader/world’s largest producer in the design and manufacture of Trash Skimmer Boat. Mavi Deniz debris and trash recovery boats are safe and easy to use and offer a practical and cost-effective solution for many shallow-marine pollution control applications.

Marine Debris, Marine Trash, and Marine Litter are harmful to marine life, including protected birds, sharks, turtles, and marine mammals. Marine debris may cause injury or death through drowning, entanglement, internal injuries, or starvation following ingestion. Seaweeds are plant-like organisms that live attached to the rock or other rigid substrates in coastal areas. Seaweeds belong to three groups, empirically distinguished since the mid-nineteenth century by thallus color: brown algae, red algae, and green algae.

The Unloader Trash Skimmer Boat is based on a robust steel or aluminum catamaran hull. It can easily remove human-made and organic floating debris, such as logs, tires, refrigerators, litter, leaves, bottles, cans, ropes, fish, and plastics. Self-Unloading: A trash Skimmer boat can self-load Trash and debris onto land or other vessels and does not need a crane. The Trash Skimmer discharges waste with an intelligent conveyor belt system.

International Maritime Organization announced a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to zero by this century; marine environmental regulations have been tightened worldwide. The implementation of emission control areas has begun to affect boat operations. Mavi Deniz has successfully started new emission control regulations by developing dual-fuel solutions and cleaner green power technologies. Mavi Deniz’s Green Power Options: Solar Energy System, Battery Power System, Hydrogen Fuel Cell System, and LPG System can be fully integrated into the Trash Skimmer Boat, including deck equipment and propulsion system.
