Large Power Barge

      1/31/2001

One of the world's largest power barges will be delivered to the Dominican Republic this year. The floating power plant, supplied by Wärtsilä, will produce 148.6MW of electricity to be transmitted directly to the national grid. Prime movers will be nine Wärtsilä 18V46 engines running on heavy fuel oil. Local utility Empresa Generadora de Electricidad Haina has placed the order for this power barge as part of its commitment to expand capacity in the country.

Wärtsilä will supply its Power Commodore barge and ensure successful interconnection with the grid. Apart from being one of the world's largest, it will also be one of the most efficient and environmentally advanced power barges ever built. Power Commodore is a 25-170MW floating power plant, which is completely standardised and can be constructed at any convenient shipyard anywhere in the world. The power barge will be constructed at Jurong Shipyard in Singapore. It will then be transported by semi-submersible vessel to its final location, just outside San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic.The project is due for completion in November 2001.
