An innovation out of the CMU’s recently established Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation, the device is designed to collect debris from the sea. The Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) is reporting positive results from the trials of the prototype of its ocean-cleaning device dubbed ‘Jambin’.An innovation out of the CMU’s recently established Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation, the device is designed to collect debris from the sea.“It is a reinforced household bin; a floating device, which is attached to a dock or jetty in the sea around the CMU,” explained Vice President of Global Affairs and Executive Director of the Blue Economy centre, Ambassador Joachim Schmillen.“In our case, we are using an air pump and PVC pipes to produce a suction effect, so that every piece of floating debris… around the waste bin will be sucked in,” he said.The bin is partially submerged and contains a mesh to catch debris, which can then be emptied once full.On February 22, in a test of the efficacy of the air pump to produce sufficient eddy to pull water into the bin, the Jambin prototype caught its first piece of debris.Ambassador Schmillen told JIS News that “on that day, we had very harsh wind conditions and high waves around the CMU and in the marina (Royal Jamaica Yacht Club) but the prototype sucked in the debris against the conditions”.“The challenge of wind and waves is not so difficult. It is not a technical problem in itself; it is because of the resistance level of the material. The biggest challenge we have at the moment is finding the material that can, for a long time, withstand the harsh conditions of the sea. We would like to use material like fibreglass to construct a more resistant waste bin,” he said.The Jambin technology was adapted from the ‘Seabin’ invented in New Zealand to remove debris, particularly plastic bottles, from the sea.Mr. Ambassador Schmillen noted, however, that the local innovation goes further.“The original ‘Seabin’ uses a water pump, but we are using an air pump because we would also like to use Jambin in our oyster project later. The air pump is producing something called nanobubbles, which are enriching the water around it with oxygen, and this stimulates sea life,” he explained.More than 30,000 oysters will be used to clean and improve the water quality of the Kingston Harbour under a pilot project being undertaken by the CMU Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation.Oysters are natural purifiers and a single adult oyster can cleanse about 50 gallons of water per day.Since 2014, oysters have been employed to rebuild oyster reefs in the waters surrounding New York City.

first_imgIn a major boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ programme that envisions Indians to be able to manufacture and service many of our current imports, the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has bagged an order to manufacture 14 Do-228 aircraft for the Indian Air Force at a order value of ₹1,090 crore.The contract calls for six reserve engines, a single flight simulator and associated equipment, HAL’s Chairman T Suvarna Raju said on Thursday. He noted that the contract reflected the trust the Defence establishment has on HAL and that the organisation remains committed in its support the nation’s defence needs. An Agni Air plane, a German-made Dornier 228 that is similar to the model that crashed on Tuesday, taxis at the domestic airport in Kathmandu.ReutersOne of the key sectors that PM Modi wants to see investment and local manufacturing is the defence sector. Currently, India ranks as the world’s biggest importer of defence related products.Dornier Do-228HAL holds the license to locally produce the Dornier Do-228 aircraft, of which it has produced 125 aircrafts, since 1983, supplying the Indian Armed Forces and also exporting the aircraft to Indian Ocean nations of Seychelles and Mauritius.The aircraft would be manufactured at HAL’s Kanpur facility.The Dornier Do-228 was designed and developed by Dornier GmbH in the late 1970s. The aircraft proved itself as a reliable, multipurpose and fuel efficient aircraft. It’s rugged but light weight twin turboprop design and a retractable tricycle landing gear allows the aircraft to operate from smaller airfields.The aircraft cockpit allows for two-person operation, and can carry 19 passenger in the commuter configuration, reported BusinessLine.last_img read more
