The Navy views OTEC technology as a potentially viable means to reduce dependence on fossil fuel for electricity generation at bases located in tropical areas, including Naval Support Facility Diego Garcia NSFDG, as well as naval facilities in Hawaii and Guam. The Navys long term objective is the commercialization of OTEC technology to permit purchase of power and water from a privately developed OTEC facility at cost effective rates. Advancing OTEC technology to a commercially viable level is the subject of this design work.
