We’re finally going to move the Interceptor
towards Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic We’ve been at the Maritime Museum over
there for the last 4 months and the system was looking very good over there But ofcourse we designed it so that it can be implemented in a dirty
river so we’re gonna set sail towards the Tweede Maasvlakte the big Port of Rotterdam load it on the big transport vessel and then set sail
towards the Dominican Republic then we can start cleaning the Rio Ozama
in the city of Santo Domingo. We are going to sail alongside the Interceptor
and Jeanne, the pushboat to make sure that we can follow everything properly We’re prepared for cold weather.
It’s going to be windy out there. So, there is a bit of wind. It’s quite cold… So there’s different working temperatures than what we’re used to for instance in Indonesia or Malaysia But I’m more than happy to
be here again and start the day. It’s going to be fun That’s Interceptor 004 over there It has been here in Rotterdam for the past four months Since we unveiled it.
This is the one we had at the unveil event Now that everything has been signed
we can commence transportation Never seen it go this fast! There’s a lot of wind, and there’s a lot of water… The Interceptor is getting quite a beating right now Mostly the barge
on the side of the system is moving a lot… Due to the waves and the wind. The guys on the tug know how to control the speeds and will try to keep it as level as possible Sun is shining.
It’s all clearing up now! I’m good, man! I’m good. It’s been a really choppy adventure… The Interceptor is moored alongside the
Gusta Luna the transportation vessel that will bring it towards the Dominican Republic.
To Santo Domingo. And we’re going to offload it over there,
get it in water again and actually get it into the dirty river the Rio Ozama, where we are heading to and start cleaning it up over there… Wind down + Sun Down=System up? That sounds like a good formula, right? Lift one out of two has been finalized.
The barge is in the hold over there just down, just here. Lift it over and lift it in. And over there the system is currently being
positioned a bit more forward So that we can position it
underneath those two crane hooks And then we start lifting it… It’s going to be fun! Looking good! Still, some final things to do but I’m
happy that we’re loaded lifts two out of two went well… I’m on the deck. We’re going!
It’s finally happening!
