OTEC International, LLC (OTI) is planning to undertake the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Plant project in Hawaii, the US.
The project involves the construction of a 100MW OTEC plant. The project will be split up into four modules of 25MW each. It will include the construction of a floating platform, the laying of transmission lines, the installation of transformers, turbines and pumping motors.
OTI will use the higher temperature of the ocean’s surface water to turn liquefied ammonia, which has a very low boiling point, into a vapor that drives a turbine and Makai Ocean Engineering has been appointed as the study consultant, Burns and Roe as the engineering consultant for the project.
Since 2008, OTI was in the process of negotiating a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Hawaiian Electric Co for a period of 25-years.
In June 2015, the project was put on hold as negotiations of PPA between OTI and Hawaiian Electric are stalled.
The project involves the construction of a 100MW off-shore power generation hub nearly 8km offshore from Kahe Point in West Oahu, Hawaii, the US.
The US$1000 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a floating platform
2. Laying of transmission line
3. Installation of transformers
4. Installation of pumping motors and meters
5. Installation of turbinesReasons To Buy
