Abstract

Ocean thermal is one of renewable energy sourcesin which the seawater temperature difference is about 20℃. Several studies have been carried out related to the conversion systems, environmental, economics, including optimum siting of the conversion systems. Among others, supporting structures for such the systems play a great role in contributing to the feasibility of the project. However, it seems there has been no common concensus or guideline to which supporting structures fit best to a particular case under consideration. Further works are required to fill this gap so that a better understanding on the supporting structures may be presented. The purpose of this work is to conduct a systematic literature review of the available studies that attempted to deal with Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) structures. The type of the structures, the type of loads, and the most frequent critical structural parts are reviewed and presented in this paper.
