New Seabin to be installed in East Cowes Marina
Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust is pleased to announce it is installing a new Seabin in East Cowes Marina, Isle of Wight. The Seabin will help tackle marine litter in the Solent and engage the public with the issue of marine plastic pollution and the impact this has on our marine life.
A Seabin is an award-winning piece of technology that helps remove litter from the marine environment. It sits in the water, attached to a structure like a pontoon, and floats up and down with the tide. By drawing in and filtering water from the surface, the device catches a wide range of items from large plastic bottles to microplastics as small as 2mm.
This is the second Solent Seabin for the Trust, after the first was installed in 2019 at Ocean Village Marina, Southampton.
This Seabin represents a collaboration between several local organisations as part of the Trust’s marine project, Secrets of the Solent, which is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project will see several Seabins placed across the Solent, each accompanied by an information board explaining the technology and its environmental benefits. This first Seabin on the Island has been generously funded by DP World Southampton as part of their commitment to protecting the local environment. The machine will be maintained by national boating business, boatfolk, which operates East Cowes Marina.
Dr Tim Ferrero, Senior Marine Biologist at Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust commented: “We’re thrilled to have played our part in this Seabin installation through our wonderful ‘Secrets of the Solent’ project. Seabins help us all to tackle the global problem of plastics in the environment both by collecting litter that is already harming our seas and by raising awareness about the issue. Hopefully when people see the Seabin at boatfolk's East Cowes Marina, and the plastic it collects, they will be motivated to take steps toward reducing their own use of disposable plastics and determined to make every effort to recycle or dispose of them responsibly.”
Steve McCrindle, Port Operations Director at DP World Southampton, said: “We are delighted to work with The Wildlife Trusts and fund the Seabin, which will help support the Solent’s diverse coastal habitats. DP World in the UK will continue to do everything it can to protect the marine environment and is working hard to meet the Government’s net zero carbon target as part of our global commitment to sustainability”.
Mike Townshend, boatfolk Marina Manager for East Cowes, said “It is great to be adding the Seabin to the range of initiatives we have in place to reduce ocean plastics. We are proud to be working with the local Wildlife Trust to provide a home for the first Seabin on the island as it is so important for us to protect the delicate ecosystem both in and around our marina”.
