The Von der Heyden Group, Cugó Gran Macina Grand Harbour, Hammett’s Collection, The Grand Harbour Marina, Palumbo, Bradbury Yacht Concierge Services and S&D Yachts announced the installation of Malta’s 2nd Seabin in a press conference held at The Sheer Bastion today, Thursday 25th October.
The 7 private companies have collaborated with Strand Marine and e-NGO Żibel, a community dedicated to keeping Malta clean, in procuring this award winning device capable of filtering 25.000 Litres of seawater per hour and 1.5Kgs of floating debris per day including harmful microplastics up to 2mm small.
Chris Hammett, director of Hammett’s Collection said: “The 3 city marinas not only provide unparalleled scenery to an iconic landmark in Malta, it is part of the island’s cultural heritage that is enjoyed by locals and visitors from all over the world. Investing in this incredible holistic solution is another step forward in ensuring environmental sustainability’’.
The 3 Cities Marina Seabin is the second Seabin to be installed after the one at the Yacht Marina in Pieta and maintained with the help of the local Senglea Regatta Club. The idea was developed in Australia with the help of crowdfunding. Sea Bins have already made a huge difference to harbours in places such as Gibraltar, Singapore, Ireland, Italy and the UK.
