COMBINED HARVESTER - The basic SeaVax machine seen here as a proof of concept (working model) was designed to filter macro & micro plastics from seawater - in bulk, and recover ghost fishing nets of up to 150 tons. It was to be solar and wind powered. The Calypso and Sargasso (seaweed) models are roughly double the capacity, with a revised specification that include renewables hydrogen in the energy equation, for more operational grunt and versatility.

 

 

 

 

To many, sargassum is a plague, brought on by global climate change, that is warming our acidic oceans. But, with machines like the proposed 'SeaVax-Sargasso' adaptation, we can not only rid the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Islands of the nuisance seaweed that is choking their beaches - but turn the tables - out of the catastrophe in the making; to advantage mankind. For example there is a world shortage of fertilizer, that sargassum could help to plug.

OCEAN CLEANING MACHINES - This is what SeaVax looked like in 2016. The proof of concept model successfully cleaned our water test tank of scaled micro and macro plastics in minutes. The SeaVax-Calypso concept will need to be tested in our test-tank, before constructing anything larger for the Caribbean Sea.

 

 

 

 

 

Using the SeaVax formula as a baseline (example), a SeaVax-Sargasso and AmphiMax-Sargasso combination, would be out of reach of most island economies, cost wise. This is more for an ocean initiative that would, presumably, need to be a G20, state funded joint venture, or United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) endeavour. But at this time there is no agreement between parties to cooperate, and no action plan. Leaving those in the firing line out in the cold.

 

If the parties were looking to devise an action plan, the Cleaner Ocean Foundation would welcome expressions of interest (by way of end users or partners) in their SeaVax-Calypso concept - as a starting point - with a view to agreeing funding levels for such development as a measure of compensation to affected nations, for ocean polluting industrial effluence.

 

We'd suggest a Caribbean consortium, to include Mexico and the Islands. If any person, group or organization might have the contacts to make this happen, please let us know.

AMPHIBIOUS BEACH RECOVERY - This concept was proven at 1:20 scale between December 2021 and January 2022, when the model seen above successfully transported the 1:20 scale SeaVax proof of concept boat, also performing variable tracked steering maneuvers. The AmphiMax series of beach launch and recovery transporters are designed to be rugged and economical to build, with hydraulically driven caterpillar tracks, resistant to seawater corrosion.

 

 

 

 

 

Climate change is responsible for warming and acid oceans. But to tackle the root cause of the sargassum crisis, via cooling of the planet would take another 30-50 years - and only then if governments were to put the development brakes on and engage economic reverse gear. Which is not about to happen, with present election strategies based on business as usual.

 

The SeaVax-Calypso, and AmphiMax-Calypso format is a more modest undertaking designed for islanders, tour and holiday operators in, or bordering the Caribbean Sea, including the Gulf of Mexico, to counter the now familiar brown horizon, and noxious 'rotten-egg' odours that upset tourists and local fisherman.

Cancun in Mexico, beaches polluted with sargassum

 

 

WHAT DRIVES US - It is pictures like this beach at Cuncun, Gulf of Mexico, stinking to high heaven with sargassum, that is ruining the local economy and ecology, that makes us want to do something about it. You can too. Why not begin a research project for your masters degree. Work with the Cleaner Ocean Foundation, to make a difference to the world your great grandchildren will inherit - if they are lucky.
