Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), Faculty of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering Department students developed a device for Famagusta Shipyard that will collect solid waste and oil from the surface of the sea. Following the meetings held in May 2023, Famagusta Shipyard asked EMU Mechanical Engineering Department to develop a device to be used by the shipyard to collect solid waste and oil from the surface of the sea.

In the meetings held with EMU Mechanical Engineering Department and the authorities of Famagusta Shipyard, it was decided that the device would be developed by the students of Mechanical Engineering department within the scope of summer internship and graduation projects in accordance with the curriculum, on the condition that Famagusta Shipyard would be providing financial and material support to the students.

In this context, EMU Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering Program students Doğukan Birdal, Mehmet Ali Şahin, Blessing Meck, Mohammed Abdelgadir and Simanur Katal started working on developing the device under the coordination of Mechanical Engineering Department academic staff members Prof. Dr. Qasim Zeeshan and Dr. Cafer Kızılörs. Students got to know the working environment at the Famagusta Shipyard during summer 2023 where they completed their summer internships.

In the 2023 – 2024 Academic Year Fall Semester, the students produced a prototype after finalizing the conceptual design of the device in the Graduation Project-I course. Then, the prototype was successfully presented to the Famagusta Shipyard on 21 February, 2024. Following the approval of the shipyard to produce the prototype in actual size, the students commenced the actual-size production of the device during 2023 – 2024 Spring Semester within the scope of the Graduation Project-II course.
