BUOY

CURRENT HONOURS PROJECT

My honours year project is well underway - check out my blog for weekly updates of my progress.

Beginning the year I was set on developing solution to retrieve lost or disregarded fishing gear to minimise the 640million tonnes entering our seas each year. My design aims to deter/prevent the loss of ghost gear (particularly creels) at sea through improving the visibility of buoys. Through using wave power, I am developing a self sufficient and affordable lit buoy. The product is primarily directed for commercial fishermen using static gear as well as other water users.


DATES FOR YOUR DIARY:


Final design will be presented at the DJCAD degree show on the 22nd May 2020 and at New Designers event in London 8th-11th July.
