Lockheed Martin and Reignwood Group have signed a contract to start design of a 10-megawatt Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) power plant, which, when complete, will be the largest OTEC project to date.

Lockheed Martin is the industry leader in the development of OTEC technology, holding 19 related patents. The Lockheed Martin-Reignwood 10-megawatt plant is considered to be a crucial step in the full commercialization of OTEC.

"The ocean holds enormous potential for terrawatts of clean, baseload energy," said Dan Heller, vice president of new ventures for Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training.

"Capturing this energy through a system like OTEC means we have the opportunity to produce reliable and sustainable power, supporting global security, a strong economic future and climate protection for future generations."

Under this initial contract, Lockheed Martin will provide project management, design and systems engineering services.

"The signing of this contract reflects both companies' passion for green energy projects, and our willingness as a team to bring forth an exciting new renewable energy source that directly benefits people of all nations," said Shaohua Liu, senior vice president for Reignwood Group.

In addition to the contract signing, Lockheed Martin also joined Reignwood Group in celebrating the ribbon cutting of Reignwood's new Innovative Technology Center, located at their corporate Beijing headquarters. The Innovative Technology Center is designed after Lockheed Martin's Energy Solutions Center in Arlington, Va., which showcases new ideas for alternative energy generation and energy infrastructure.

"This OTEC agreement and the establishment of a joint Innovative Technology Center between Reignwood Group and Lockheed Martin represents an important milestone that brings our advanced technologies to bear on the important global issues of climate change and renewable energy," said Dr. Ray O Johnson, senior vice president and chief technology officer for Lockheed Martin.

Urban Underground Holds Sustainable Energy
Karlsruhe, Germany (SPX) Nov 06, 2013
Vast energy sources are slumbering below big cities. Sustainable energies for heating in winter and cooling in summer may be extracted from heated groundwater aquifers. Researchers from KIT and ETH Zurich developed an analytical heat flux model and found that increasing heat in the underground is mainly caused by an increase in surface temperatures and heat release from buildings.
