A small scale, affordable OTEC unit, suitable for remote sites where onshore developments are not possible.
This Single Offshore Unit is groundbreaking when it comes to cost, scale, and feasibility.
The great advantage for these Offshore units is that they only require 750-1000 meters of hose because the hose is held vertically. Therefore, this kind of unit has the lowest possible size and is the most manageable physically. As a result there is no simpler way to arrange an OTEC system than the Offshore OTEC unit.
The unit can be held underwater where wave forces are lower or they can be held at the sea-surface.
