In the morning of Sep 10, 2018, the 'Maersk Launcher' sailed from San Francisco along with the Ocean Cleanup System 001 to a Pacific position, where the design will initially be tested. The tire is operated at a speed of 3.5 knots. If the test goes well, Sthe ystem 001 will be dragged on to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where it was hoped that it would be able to collect 50 tonnes of waste in the first year. The ambition was to build 60 similar installations that allegedly will be able to remove half of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch over five years. So far, the technique is untested, and now it will prove whether it works in practice. The System 001 is equipped with radar reflectors and warning lights and is therefore no danger to ship traffic. System 001 also does not pose a threat to wildlife. Maersk Supply Service was operating the ship free of charge for the project.
