Floating power plants supply electricity

MAN Diesel & Turbo and the Turkish energy company Karadeniz are working together to create floating power plants. They are converting decommissioned bulk carriers, heavy lift vessels and barges into mobile power plants or so-called “power ships”. These can be deployed at sea to deliver electricity to places where it is urgently needed.
