OCEAN CLEANING INNOVATION - This amazing autonomous boat called "SeaVax", was on display at the Old Billingsgate exhibition centre in London on the 9-10th of November 2015 for Innovate 2015. The stand was especially made for this show with a direction from the organizers that the base should be finished in white. It is possible to tilt the robot vessel so that it is horizontal or vertical. The stand is motorised to revolve at about one revolution every 35 seconds.

 

ROAD SHOW - Although not ready for this year's outing, it is planned to make the stand interactive with audiences as part of a rig intended for road show. We may fit driven wheels in place of the adjustable feet such that the robotic boat and stand combined can give interesting displays, demonstrating the versatility of robotics. The "SeaVax" boat is designed to vacuum plastic waste from the polluted oceans of the world. Not at this scale. This proof of concept model is only 2.2 metres long. The full size vessel is 44 metres long with a suction head some 13.5 metres wide - making it the world's largest vacuum cleaner and a potential Guinness world record holder. Miss Ocean is very proud to be associated with such an ocean friendly project.

 

RECYCLED - The stand was made from 100% recycled steel on a shoe-string budget. The re-engineered machinery is salvaged from everyday conveniences, such as cars and washing machines. Despite the elegant appearance, the stand has an exceptionally low centre of gravity that makes the exhibit rock steady. Chris Close, the project manager, is seen here with the vessel giving you some idea of scale. The stand is nicknamed Nelson's Column and has a base (not shown here) complete with hand carved lions (as per Sir Edwin Landseer) by way of a miniature Trafalgar Square. A tribute to one of the most famous British Admirals: Horatio Nelson.

EQUALITY - Miss ocean is not a beauty pageant, it is a water sports pageant, where the character and achievement of the contestants is paramount. Being attractive will not be held against you, but we are looking for women with skills who care about the ocean and want to use the competition as an opportunity to do something about the present inaction on the part of most governments.
