The holidays are fast approaching, and before winding down for the holiday season, we wanted to give a status update about Project Boil the Ocean.
- The advanced desalinator design continues. This is a necessary part of processing salty water into pure, fresh water through the abundant power of the sun.
- OMS has begun development of a prototype solar collector design that could help solar heat and power become affordable and reliable, for residential areas from the Keys to Hawaii, from Ohio to even Alaska. It should even be scalable, for much larger power needs. A prototype should be ready for testing within 6 months.
- We’ve completed the first round of testing for our controls automation software, which we’ve dubbed “The Green Vector.” Despite a few initial bugs that have since been addressed, this software is versatile and robust. It can be used on any computer, or even a smartphone, and can be scaled up or down and customized for OMS’s R&D and commercial needs, including test rigs and large megawatt scale projects.

On a separate note, OMS is now hosting the website for the Cleveland chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Renewable Energy Committee. Check it out: www.operationmustardseed.com/SESC/SESC%20Website/index.html
Happy Holidays! We here with OMS are looking forward to an exciting year 2012, filled with forward progress toward energy sustainability.
