Desalination

OTEC and SWAC systems desalinate the Seawater using reverse osmosis

Placing a Desalination Unit next to the OTEC or SWAC plant allows us to produce huge amounts of fresh, clean water for drinking, agriculture or aquaculture

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC)

  • 100% Clean Energy
  • Produces Fresh Drinking Water
  • Reduces Dependency on Foreign Oil
  • 80% Of the Sun’s Solar Energy is Stored in the World’s Oceans’ Surface Waters and Replenished Daily

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, known as “OTEC”, is a scientifically proven system that uses the oceans' natural temperature differentials to drive a generator producing electricity and potable water, without the use of fossil fuels. OTEC is ideally suited for tropical and subtropical regions of the world, where three billion people live. 

Eighty percent of the sun’s solar energy is stored in the surface waters of the world’s oceans and replenished daily.

OTEC taps into this vast renewable energy source by using the temperature differential between the warm surface water and cold deep ocean water to make clean electricity. Equally important, OTEC can use a portion of its electricity to operate adjoining water desalination plants, thus producing abundant volumes of water for drinking, aquaculture, and agriculture.

In a closed cycle OTEC system, ocean water flows through two large pipes: a warm water pipe containing the sun-heated surface water and a cold water pipe containing the chilly water from the deep ocean. The heat from the surface water is used to boil a working fluid with a low boiling point (such as ammonia) creating steam, which turns a turbine generator to produce electricity. The cold deep ocean water is then used to condense the steam back into liquid form, allowing the system to repeat this process continuously- forever fueled by the sun’s reliable daily heating of the surface water.

Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC)

  • Reduces Electricity Usage by up to 90%
  • Produces Fresh Drinking Water
  • Reduces Dependency on Foreign Oil
  • Cost-Efficient, Reliable Solution
  • Ideal for Large-Scale Air Conditioning Needs: Resorts, Hotels, Data Centers, and more

Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) systems uses the virtually unlimited natural resource of deep ocean cold water to produce air conditioning without the use of chemicals and uses up to 90% less electricty when compared to conventional systems

While an OTEC plant has two pipes (one warm water pipe and one cold water pipe), an SWAC plant has only one pipe…the cold water pipe, which brings up the chilly deep ocean water. This cold deep water is used to cool buildings, reducing electricity usage by 80%-90% when compared to conventional AC…saving the typical customer millions of dollars in electricity bills over the life of an energy service agreement with Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation.

Like OTEC, SWAC plants can desalinate the seawater into fresh water for drinking, aquaculture, and agriculture.
