RanMarine is proud to introduce the latest evolution of the WasteShark! The hull has a new, sleeker, more streamlined design for reduced water resistance. And the new collision avoidance software means that this drone swims more safely than ever before.

The WasteShark is designed for round-the-clock waste collection. It also scans and monitors the environment, sending data back to central command.

Inspired by nature and blending technology, form and function, the WasteShark is designed to swim through water and eat its prey with minimum effort and maximum efficiency.The Waste Shark can gather up to 500 kilograms of waste, or 1120 pounds, before returning it to a collection point.

The vessel also gathers data about water quality, and designs more efficient collection routes as it learns over time. Useful as these types of drones may be in smaller bodies of water—like ports and lakes—the true test will come when they’re thrown into the ocean.
