Nautic Harvester / construction equipment

Nautic Harvester
Nautic Harvester

The „Nautic Harvester“ is a construction equipment designed to remove sediment from barrier lakes. The machine both removes the mud and allows for recycling of the collected eutrophic material into fertilizer. The mud is drawn in and the contained water is pushed out through gills during a compression process. During compression, a dense pellet is formed, wrapped into plastic film and released. Both its fluent form and its restraint in choice of color palette and material integrate the “Nautic Harvester” into its underwater environment.
