Update ~ Floating Power Plants
I wrote about Floating Power Plants a while ago. And indeed, given the power crisis in South Africa and beyond, as documented by the Wall St Journal in an article entitled In Africa, Outages Stifle a Boom, there's a timely Waller Marine update article entitled Are Non-Nuclear Floating Power Plants an Option for South Africa? Also, TR spotlights the promise of floating windpower in an article entitled Wind Power That Floats: Advances in floating platforms could take wind farms far from coasts, reducing costs and skirting controversy. They note several examples, including the Blue H deepwater windpower floatsystem.
