Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa Invests In Beach Cleaner To Tackle Plastic Pollution

14th September 2023 (Natadola, Fiji): InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts and owned by Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF), is proud to announce its latest revolutionary initiative to preserve the pristine beauty of Natadola Beach and protect the ocean from plastic pollution. The luxury resort, located on one of the best beaches in the world, has invested in a state-of-the-art Manta Beach Cleaner, making it the first resort in Fiji to implement this cutting-edge technology and reinforce its commitment to environmental sustainability as part of IHG's Journey To Tomorrow program. 

“We are delighted to introduce the Manta Beach Cleaner to Natadola Beach as part of our commitment to preserving Fiji's biggest asset, the environment.,” commented Lachlan Walker, Portfolio General Manager – IHG Hotels & Resorts, FNPF Owned Hotels. “This investment aligns with our commitments through IHG’s 'Journey To Tomorrow' program, reflecting a dedication to sustainable practices across all our properties." 

As the first resort in Fiji to implement the Manta Beach Cleaner, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa sets an example of environmental sustainability in the region, leading the way for other large-scale hospitality establishments to follow suit. 

Key features of the Manta Beach Cleaner include

Innovative System: The Manta Beach Cleaner is equipped with a fixed blade that collects and filters sand from seaweed, rubbish, rubble, and debris. 

Efficient Cleaning: With a working depth ranging from 0 to 20 cm and a working width of 160 cm, the machine can cover approximately 20,000 square meters per hour. 

Waste Management: It utilizes an innovative loading system comprising two vertical sieves with alternating motion. This minimizes stress on the machine and efficiently separates waste from clean sand. 

Suitable for Various Needs: Designed to be suitable for tractors starting from 35 Hp, the machine is equipped with a fixed blade that collects sand and debris. It offers versatility with easily interchangeable sieves - one with a finer mesh and one with a larger mesh.
