Countdown to live
Tune in on October 6 (6:00 am PT / 9:00 am ET / 3:00 pm CET) for a live update from The Ocean Cleanup crew in Los Angeles and Rotterdam
On Thursday, October 6, 2022, The Ocean Cleanup will tow Interceptor 007 to its deployment location in Ballona Creek, Los Angeles County, USA.
As the sun rises, the latest generation of our Interceptor technology will begin its journey along the iconic coastline and beaches of California to its deployment location. This journey across the open ocean will take around six hours. Over the coming days, Interceptor 007 will be installed and trialed to begin preventing trash from reaching the ocean.
To mark this checkpoint in our journey, The Ocean Cleanup is broadcasting the entire towing operation live from onboard Interceptor 007 in the Pacific Ocean as well as from The Ocean Cleanup HQ in Rotterdam, where crew members (and special guests) will be monitoring the operation, sharing stories and discussing where we are and where we’re going with our mission.
