Since 2010, The Rozalia Project has been committed to tackling the impacts of marine debris. In the past 13 years, they have cleared over one million pieces of trash from our ocean. This includes a whopping 20,000 pounds of debris they have cleared in the summer of 2023 alone. The Rozalia Project does this through innovation, solution-based research, and engaging STEM programs. They conquer these expeditions onboard a ’60s sailing research vessel called The American Promise.
American Promise anchored off in the distance on the coast of Maine.
American Promise is now the world's greenest sailing vessel armed with sustainability technology such as solar panels, a wind generator, and Sensar Marine on board. On cleanup days while sailing in the Gulf of Maine clearing debris on remote islands, Sensar Marine has their back. The Rozalia Project crew anchors American Promise in remote coves along the coast of Maine to head into shore for hours at a time to recover and catalog derelict fishing gear.
The Sensar Marine App providing the crew with critical information while they are away.
Having the Sensar Marine Boat Monitor and app has provided them with extra support when away from the boat for long periods of time. They are able to check all of their critical systems remotely and feel at ease that the boat is safe, providing all focus to the mission at hand. The Boat Monitor isn’t just a piece of technology to The Rozalia Project, it has become a vital crew member aboard The American Promise to ensure everything is OK while its crew is away cleaning and protecting the ocean!
