  • A 100 kW OTEC pilot plant was constructed for demonstration purposes in the Republic of Nauru and began, in October 1981, to send electricity to the real power system. The main points of the plan, design and technical considerations are introduced as well as the operation results up to date. This pilot plant operation has proved the validity of the electrical and mechanical design, and the underwater pipeline laying method in the field of ocean-civil engineering.
