Curaçao Ecopark with SWAC and OTEC research
The Curaçao Airport Holding company are working on a an “industrial park for high-tech production and research facilities with a sustainable character” called an Ecopark and have recently signed an MOU with a German company, Bricks International to develop a draft plan for the Ecopark. The concept was designed (PDF file) by a Dutch company, Bluerise, which is a startup company in the OTEC technology-provider space. Interestingly enough, the Ecopark vision is focused around Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC), OTEC research, cold-bed agriculture, mariculture and algea farms, essentially taking inspiration from the
Hawaii based NELHA.
