What: Ocean Thermal Energy
Where: Nederland, Curaçao
Harnessing the ocean’s power
Covering seventy percent of our globe, the oceans are the largest solar collector and can provide a vast amount of clean and renewable energy, day and night all year round. Ocean Thermal Energy is destined to become the leading source of renewable energy worldwide.
Bluerise provides advanced technology and systems that use temperature differences in the oceans to generate electricity, cooling and fresh water. Bluerise is specialized in OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) and SWAC (Seawater Air Conditioning) technologies
Furthermore Bluerise provides technology and development plans for implementation of OTEC and SWAC as well as Ocean Ecoparks that utilize the ocean resource by means of innovative technologies for desalination, agriculture and aquaculture among others.
Ocean Ecopark is a sustainable and commercially attractive ‘technology park’ based on the use of the rich deep seawater resource. The core-concept of the Ocean Ecopark is based on the synergy to make the most efficient use of local resources, including the unique, cold, deep seawater, and other renewable resources. The main goal is to create added value and benefits for communities.
Ocean Ecopark offers multiple possibilities. Energy from the OTEC installation, Aquaculture, Horticulture, fresh water and algae production. The prices of energy, water and imports are often high. Ocean Thermal Energy offers the opportunity for energy independence in an environmentally friendly way, enabling new sources of economic growth. The Ocean Ecopark offers the opportunity for locally produced food. It’s an investment for now and for the future, an investment that will generate profits quickly.
