Lockheed Martin To Build World’s First Ocean Thermal Power Plant Off China Coast

Lockheed Martin have been working for forty years on harnessing energy from the massive temperature differentials in the ocean, and thanks to a partnership between the US defense and aerospace giant and a Chinese resort developer, a 10-megawatt power plant using ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) will be built off southern China’s Hainan Island.

The agreement has been signed between Lockheed Martin and the Beijing-based Reignwood Group and will hopefully see the power plant completed by 2017. The power plant will provide 100% of the power necessary to run the resort, which will be marked as a low-carbon real estate development.

Ocean thermal power involves heating warm surface water to produce steam that drives a turbine generator. Cold water is then pumped from 800 to 1,000 metres below the ocean surface to condense the steam back into a liquid form.
