Today emerging economies need power for their burgeoning infrastructure projects and growing middle class. A power barge is the fastest solution when electrical energy is needed on short notice in remote areas or areas struck by natural disaster. The land-based resources needed to construct a power station are generally difficult due to local issues, environmental clearance etc. The key problem will be moving the heavy machinery and transport over water is the efficient way to get large equipment to the site.
Fully independent floating power plant
A floating power station can be entirely self-contained and can be built and installed relatively quickly, supplying harbors, coastal regions or sites near rivers with critically needed electricity independently of local resources or infrastructure.
Steel Ships power barges can be built with heavy fuel oil and gas engine types in any requirements. We always recommend going forward for new projects to operate fully under gas power (C4H4).
The benefits are:
Support rapid infrastructure development in remote regions
Short building times: A 50 MW power station can be installed in less than 12 months
Reduced reliance on poor or non-existent local capacities
Unaffected by landslides and earthquakes
The power station where power is required
Independence from local infrastructure
Minimum operator investment risk and advantage in financing thanks to the mobility, versatility and adaptability of this type of power plant
