A Power Barge refers to the power plant located in a special ship, which can supply electricity, heat and fresh water for natural disasters, offshore operations hard to be covered by the power grid, and remote areas. It is applicable to coastal areas and river basins.
Sometimes, a power barge can be the best and quickest 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 may not be available, and transport over water may be the only way to get large equipment to the site.
A floating power plant can be entirely self-contained and can installed relatively quickly at any locations accessible by water such as harbors, coastal regions or sites near rivers for supplying critically needed electricity independently of local resources or infrastructure.
Our power barges are offered with all of our diesel and gas generator sets from 2 MW to 21 MW. Power Barges are offered burning diesel or heavy fuel oil of electrical power. They are capable of delivering electrical power to all locations accessible by water: in coastal areas, in harbours, on rivers, lakes and other waterways. They can be readily located near to where power is needed, thus supporting rapid economic and infrastructure development in remote regions.

Floating Power Plant Benefits:
● Simple and straightforward location of the power station where power is required.
● Support rapid infrastructure development in remote regions.
● Short building times: 70 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.
● Independence from local infrastructure.
● Minimum operator investment risk and advantage in financing thanks to the mobility, versatility and adaptability of this type of plant.
