Mitsui O.S.K to launch ocean thermal power plant in 2025

Japan shipper eyes cheaper green energy than floating offshore wind farms

TOKYO -- Japan marine transport company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines aims to launch a large-scale facility that uses ocean thermal energy conversion technology to generate power by around 2025, Nikkei has learned.
