Thrivikramji.com | The wave power to electricity generation unit that was installed on the sea side of Vizhinjam break water is iconic of failure of a technology that was once suggested and not practiced widely was installed in Vizhinjam..the madras iit was in charge of everything from the imagination to installation. Luckily the concrete caisson , the heart of the power plant turned turtle while being hauled to the site inthe seabed from the shore due to snapping of a cable that was used. Well n t Rama rao during his reign in ap had a pet idea to erect a statue of Buddha or so in the lake in Hyderabad, had the same fate by the barge breaking into half while hauling the statue to the platform in the lake…well whether it is Vizhinjam or ap it is all funded by taxpayer who is always snubbed by the administration. Well in Vizhinjam the second caisson was cast and then hauled with better wire cables and put in place.the generator delivered like 14 kv power. There was a local office of theprojectoperatingfrom the government guest house at Vizhinjam..like every thing else there was no gun salute when project fumbled and died..it all happened in 1980-82 when I was doing a sand drift study in and around the Vizhinjam sea with a team to support when I was working for the then Cess. Today’s mathrubhoomi carried a rip photo feature. Well this is the state of indegenous sci and tech. Even if it is copied from literature we miserably fail in doing it right. Alas only thing Indians do right is getting a good night sleep……
