The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. In October of last year Slat rolled out Ocean Cleanup's newest design: The Interceptor. The Interceptor is The Ocean Cleanup’s answer for river plastic waste; A trash collecting ship that is 100% solar powered. With the conveyor belt it will collect trash near the ship to prevent it entering to the ocean. The Interceptor can store up to 50m3 of trash. When the interceptor is almost full, it automatically sends a text message to the local operators to collect the waste. Van der Leun Vietnam's service team was available in Can Tho, Vietnam and supported the project team during assembling the electrical installation of the Interceptor 003.
