Bluerise is a Dutch company that develops technology and solutions based on the ocean thermal gradient. Bluerise creates products, concepts and services to exploit the enormous thermal potential stored in the world’s tropical oceans. Energy use for Air-Conditioning can be reduced by up to 90%. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) can supply baseload (24/7) electricity by using the temperature differences in the ocean. Bluerise is currently developing a project for the Curacao Airport Holding including the use of SWAC to replace its existing A/C systems and the installation of an 20 hectare Ocean Ecopark that will house a Bluerise’s ~500 KW pilot OTEC system for Curaçao International Airport. Next to this, an Ocean Ecopark is under development that will use the cold water to cool greenhouses, supply aquaculture and generate desalinated water to other tenants. Bluerise is currently expanding its operations throughout the Caribbean and Pacific region. Bluerise has its beginnings at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands. The company was conceived in 2009 with the vision of developing a large scale sustainable solution to the global energy mix. It was then officially founded with initiation of operations in 2010, where its first mission was to outline an OTEC strategy to provide power to the airport of Curacao.
