US industrial giant Lockheed Martin plans to build a 10MW Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (Otec) power plant off the coast of southern China for Beijing-headquartered conglomerate Reignwood.

The pilot project, progressing under a memorandum of understanding, will create the largest Otec development to date, supplying 100% of the electricity needed for a green resort to be built by Reignwood.

It is also seen as laying the foundation for the construction of a number of Otec power plants in the region ranging up to 100MW – the same amount of energy in a year as 1.3 million barrels of oil, but minus the carbon emissions.
