#Ocean #energy #technology in India is gaining the attention it deserves. Ocean has a lot of energy sources, like #tide, #wave, sea #thermal (differential temperature), #current and even #offshoreWind. West coast in India has more tide and current power, whereas East coast has wave and offshore winds. The differences are due to shallow depths of sea near East coast and deeper ones near the West coast. This article talks of #signalingBuoys that assist navigation to #Chennai #port and out of it. Please note that Chennai port is not a natural port. The sea was dug out deep near the port premises for the #ships to #berth. These areas are dredged regularly to maintain the port deep. That is why guidance is necessitated for #navigation to the port. The article also claims that a facility is built to desalinate sea water using ocean energy. It also claims that the buoys were built indigenously in India at much lower cost. India is being part of #intergovernmental effort to harness ocean energy and hope to gain more from collaborative efforts!
