Harbour Continues to Decarbonise Operations with New Trash Skimmer

Let us introduce you to Corbie, our new electric trash skimmer.

Purchased following the receipt of funding from the Scottish Government’s Marine Directorate, the benefits of the new vessel are manifold. Whilst Corbie contributes to our ongoing strategy to decarbonise Harbour operations, it has also proved to be an instant hit with Harbour personnel as a highly effective and efficient means of keeping the marine environment free from surface debris.

Importantly, the introduction of Corbie (named after one of the Houses at Fraserburgh Academy) is also a great opportunity for us to teach local school children of all ages about the effects of marine litter – and we had great fun working with the Academy when it came to proposing the vessel’s name!
