Here we go again! Every time I think about my first ocean power, the blue power project video some new ones come to mind. Im not talking about a project how to build a wind generator in my garage. Im talking about big projects and the concern we have on how to solve the demands of power that our civilization will have in the near future. The collective mind may solve our dilemma. Here is my input! So, out with oil, out with coal, out with hydro electrics and in with wind, ocean and sun.
What I envision is parts of the oceans that are suitable for this project to be covered with thousands of ocean power stations. Oil platforms pollutes the oceans with oil, chemicals and heavy metals and sooner or latter they are bound to retire but we can give them new life in a new (world) way!
Marine environment is hard on anything that stays in the water for long time. Barnacles and sea weed are like pests, adds weight and can stop any moving part dead on. My project uses old platforms as base for many generators but it can also be built on land. It uses old technology and nothing that does not suppose to be close to the water is in the water.
Probably it would not have any bad impact on marine life and perhaps marine life itself could benefit from it since fishes would be using the underwater columns for nursery. I bet there is nothing better for a fish swimming in open waters then to find a platform for shelter. For sure it is not funny to be running around with a mouth full of teeth right on your tail fin and no place to hide!
