French engineering companies Bardot Group and Doris have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop their activities in the industry of marine thermic energies.
Under the MoU, the companies will work together in developing innovative solutions for ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) and water intake systems for sea water air conditioning (SWAC) applications.
The parties will be joining their expertise and experience to work on ongoing OTEC project in the Maldives and other potential projects worldwide, Bardot Group informed.
According to Bardot Group, both CEOs, Guy Bardot and Nicolas Parsloe, are confident that this partnership will accelerate the progress made in OTEC developments, allowing the innovative solution to increase its exploitation.
To remind, Bardot Group recently signed a contract install an ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) system in an eco-resort in the Maldives.
Its floating OTEC concept has subsequently been approved by the classification agency Bureau Veritas.
Maldivian OTEC project is expected to be completed early in 2018.
