From near, the temperature difference is large seawater until the deep sea, Malaysia is one of the areas where OTEC is facing. The power generation technology, we hope that you fly to the world from Kume Island.
Last month we welcomed visitors from the University of Technology Malaysia to the OTEC demonstration facility on Kume Island. Many countries in the South Pacific are uniquely well suited to OTEC as they have high populations near to deep-sea water while also having high surface sea water temperatures . Many of these countries also have large populations without power or clean drinking water.
OTEC may be the answer to solving many of these problems, and researchers at UTM are looking at ways to make OTEC viable for their people. During the trip, UTM signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Saga University, Japan’s leading OTEC research institution. Japan is happy to welcome visitors to experience the only fully operational OTEC facility in the world. Together we can work towards fully commercial OTEC plants to bring clean renewable power to more of the world.
