More about India OTEC

Headlines India has an article about the Sagar Shakti OTEC plant ship which we wrote about yesterday. According to the article they use a 600 meter long pipeline weighing 100 tons. An analysis by The Indic View blog says this pilot plant produces fresh water at twice the price of a reverse osmosis plant, but this should come down significantly in larger installations. According to The Hindu, NIOT is also proposing a waste heat OTEC (DTEC) plant to work in cooperation with thermal powerplants (presumably coal or oil powered) in and around Chennai (formerly Madras).
