Lockheed Martin (engineering corporation, US) partnerships with Consortium Reignwood (constructions, HK) to construct an Ocean Thermal energy Conversion (OTEC) in the South China seas, setting the standards high for all other worldwide OTEC building and development. Reignwood consortium constructed holiday resort township will draw in the sustainable energy provided by the power plant. The power generation of the power plant is estimated to be around 10 watts, enough to light up a small metropolis.
The higher degree of variation in the temperature levels between the surface and the sub-waters aided by the warmth of the oceanic waves, which increases the productivity of the power plant by greater folds. Making the South China seas the most potential waters to operate an OTEC.
OTEC power plants not only have the potential to generate higher extents of energy but also has several other advantages, which are as follow: -
Aiming to leverage the OTEC power plant optimizations, many engineering experts claim that the threshold energy produced can be utilized to power electricity-driver automobiles and also can be made to reach areas accumulating resources for desalination of waters. This venture is surely trustworthy, in terms of providing maximum benefits to both the money investing business giants.
This Chinese OTEC power plant will uphold the spirit to discuss and develop apt constructional plans, giving rise to 100 Mega Watts of energy harnessing OTEC. In the current scenario, OTEC is already promising to be a sustainable fuel alternative production set-up. If things go similarly, OPEC will be considered the safest energy generation method aiding the global economy
