OTEC Plant to Be Developed in India

But in India, there's news of an OTEC development in this piece, Ocean thermal Energy Plant Coming Up Soon , The Hindu (8/6/03). The blurb quotes Minister of State for Non-conventional Energy Resources M Kannappan as saying that a one mw floating Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion power plant is in the final stages of commissioning near Tuticorin port.
