We are currently preparing for the upcoming Pacific cleanup trials, by finalizing our engineering, making operational preparations and conducting subsystem tests. The North Pacific cleanup trials are set to start in late 2017.
During the cleanup trials, several tests will be performed to test the systems stability and behavior. Based on the results of these tests, the system will iteratively be improved until it operates as intended.
Watch the video where Boyan Slat explains the road towards the cleanup, as well as recent changes to our design in the context of a very special presentation held on May 11th 2017:
