“Power Ships” – Ships Which Power Up Cities

2175

The project “Power of Friendship” was developed and conducted by the Karadeniz Energy Group for countries of the Middle East, Africa and Asia, aiming to fulfill the urgent electricity needs of all countries in the world with their Powership fleet. Current Powership fleet capacity of their group exceeds 750 MW.  With the current vessels under construction, the Fleet capacity is scheduled to surpass 2,000MWs before the end of 2013. Powership fleet will be operating in 15 different countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.  The Powerships are high technology floating power plants designed and constructed to fulfill the urgent electricity needs of the countries through rental contracts or power purchase agreements (PPA).

Powerships are delivered to the client countries as a complete power plant ready to operate immediately.  Powership capacities range from 45-500MW and are delivered between 60-180 days to provide medium-term solutions with contracts of 2 to 5 years.  Powerships are constructed with a special technology that can operate both on liquid fuels (HFO/RFO)as well as natural gas with a dual fuel option.  With high efficiency and availability, Powerships can provide uninterrupted electricity at various high voltage levels.  Operation and maintenance of the Powerships are also provided by the Karadeniz Energy Group.

  1. LNG operated Power Barges and Power ships are the quick answer for power starved coastal areas. Some of these barges are specially constructed at low draft to tow all the way in the river to electrify remote river side villages, which can stimulate industrial growth in rural areas. There are many such power barges readily available for lease. While LNG bunkering infrastructure and LNG operated ships are in a supply/demand “Chicken and Egg” situation, it s a good option to moor LNG power barge off port cites. This will give a boost to LNG infrastructure to take off, encouraging to build more LNG operated /duel fuel ships. Norway, the leader in LNG, has already done this to power cruise ships moored in their water. If other larger ports also follow this “out of the box” idea, usage of LNG could be accelerated. If respective port authorities could give attractive incentive, particulate emission from ships could be reduced in their own area and also could contribute to GHG reduction.
