Lockheed Martin looking for OTEC technology in India?

OTECAccording to the Indian newspaper The Mint, Lockheed Martin are looking to acquire OTEC technology from India. This has supposedly been leaked from a government official. This would supposedly be about deep pipe technology. One wonders if rumour is overplayed, considering that the most well respected company in the world, when it comes to deep seawater pipes is Makai Ocean Engineering, based in Hawaii.
