Ocean Victory & Possibilities in Tidal Power for Bangladesh
Now Bangladesh has great possibilities in the field of tidal power generation. Because recently, Bangladesh has gained large ocean area from two neighbor countries- India and Myanmar. It is a great victory for Bangladesh. From this ocean victory Bangladesh has been assured rights over 118,813 square kilometers or territorial sea. Now, Bangladesh has a 200 nautical miles exclusive economic zone, the continental shelf beyond the 200 nautical miles economic zone and access to the open sea, thus preventing it from turning into a ‘sea-locked country’.
This exclusive economic zone is a sea-zone over which Bangladesh has sovereign rights for the use and exploration of marine resources, including oil and gas. Huge potential energy is available in this large sea-zone which can be utilized by generating electricity.
