Solar Energy Station
Ingenious stuff coming up... As the baddie, Scaramanga needs a lair, not just a scary name. And this particular base is a Paradise island within some Thai islands that doubles as a Solar Energy Power Station. Ta da.
“Thermo-electric generators to convert solar energy into electricity”, says 007. Before adding, “Super conductivity coils cooled by liquid helium”.
You get the impression someone had been to the dentist and the only waiting room magazine available was New Scientist, circa 1973. Actually, that's almost exactly what happened. Michael Wilson, Cubby Brocolli's step-son and the man that would later fill his shoes in the production chair, did the appropriate research.
Incidentally, the island is now know as James Bond Island and visitors from all around the world have made a pilgrimage there.
