Technology Description OTEC Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion is a unique technology to generate electric power by converting thermal energy accumulated in the ocean

Mooring Configuration Floating structure similar to a semi submersible drill rig Connected to a shore station with an electric cable It is dynamically positioned but we may use light mooring depending on the specific location For the most part these plants will be in deep but still waters Because top side surface will be at a minimum there will be minimum wind load Currents in an area must be measured to depth so that the use of effluent water as a dynamic force and the need for thrusters will be determined
