As part of the July 1st Maritime and Cabotage Day, Antalya Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Muhittin Böcek visited the Marine and Coastal Management Branch Directorate, which was established about a year ago. Deputy Governor and Border Civil Chief Suat Seyidoğlu, Coast Guard Antalya Group Commander Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Murat Sezgin, Coast Guard School Commander Colonel Engin Kuntay, Chamber of Maritime Commerce Antalya Branch President Ahmet Çetin, Antalya Regional Port President Mustafa Yılmaz and Qport General Manager Özgür Sert also attended.
We Own the Sea
We continue to defend our sea and nature in Antalya, working with all institutions and organizations, Mayor Böcek stated, pointing out that the Marine and Coastal Management Branch Directorate has carried out significant effort to maintain the seas clean. We take all essential measures to protect the environment and our medical procedures. Antalya, this is our land. We own the seas. And once again, congratulations on this lovely day.
Metropolitan Will Watch Sea Conditions
Following Mayor Böcek's speech, the director of the Marine and Coastal Management Branch, engineer Kemal Özgün, shared information on the works of the directorate. The "Electronic Ship Inspection System," which is now at the tender stage of the Metropolitan Municipality, was mentioned by Özgün when explaining the measures being made to reduce marine pollution.
The Sea Will Become Safe
The cameras in question, according to Özgün, can even see the fuel pipeline under the sea, therefore this is how we will protect our city from sea pollution. This method will assist us in resolving maritime pollution and accidents. The AIS image and radar image will be superimposed, and artificial intelligence will alert us about marine pollution. With the thermal camera image, when a ship releases water at various temperatures into the sea, we will be able to see it in different color tones. If a ship releases wastewater into the sea, it will be sufficient for us to take administrative action with these images.
Sea Vacuum Cleaner Launched into the Mediterranean
Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Muhittin Böcek also attended the ceremony of launching Antalya's first sea vacuum cleaner, which was commissioned by the Metropolitan Municipality on the Cabotage Festival. Mayor Böcek, was lowered the sea vacuum cleaner named ABB Mavi 07, belonging to the Metropolitan Municipality Marine and Coastal Management Branch Directorate into the Mediterranean from the Fisherman's Shelter with assistance of a crane crane.
Together with our environmental friends, sailors, all institutions and organizations, chamber presidents, non-governmental organizations, and colleagues, we will keep watching Antalya to preserve our seas.We wish to meet in clean seas on healthy and beautiful days," he said.
The sea vacuum cleaner named ABB Mavi 07, was purchased by the Metropolitan Municipality as part of the fight against marine litter. It will collect the physical garbage on the sea surface. Benefiting from solar energy, the sea vacuum cleaner can mow underwater algae and collect pollen, mucilage and petroleum-derived waste.
