LOW TECH SOLUTION TO TROPICAL ISLANDS ENERGY NEEDS
We unlock Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, by a low tech approach on the main technical barrier, the cold water pipe.
Clean energy 24/7 in 100 tropical countries
OTEC converts a difference of 20 degrees between the surface and the 1000m depth layer of the oceans into electricity using thermodynamics
Available cold water pipes are made for oil and gas
Recent OTEC projects failed because of the technical and economical issues about the CWP. Existing pipe technologies are adapted to the revenues for oil extraction.
Pumping water is significantly less profitable, thus the pipe design should considerably differ.
We believe in the development of Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, by a low tech approach on the main technical lock, the cold water pipe.
In Emerging and Isolated Markets
Our goal is to include a real local content in our product to develop a clean blue energy around the world with a better technologic and risk management.
To Solve Technical Challenges
We actively work with experts to progress on the technology development aligned with our strategic thinking on low tech approach.
