Ocean energy project eyed in Zambales

Deep Ocean Power Philippines, a unit of California-based Deep Ocean Power, is conducting studies on at least 36 sites for possible ocean power sources.

These sites are in Panay, Negros, Laoag, Zambales, Mindoro, Isabela, and parts of Mindanao.

Said potential sites stretch 21,450 hectares however the areas subject to verification under the prescribed blocking of system of the Department of Energy.

Deep Ocean is currently engaged in the business of using ocean thermal energy conversion which makes use of the temperature differential between the warm surface waters of the oceans, heated by solar radiation, and the deeper cold waters to generate electricity.

In Western Visayas, the DOE is looking for investors to develop a 100-megawatt ocean thermal energy resource potential in San Jose, Antique.

The said 100-MW project would cost US$ 250 million. Asia Pulse Data Source via COMTEX
