Power Barges

Innovative Thinking. Sound Engineering

Power Generation Barges, Margarita I and Josefa Rufina I, in transport to Venezuela

Offshore green energy is our future.


Developing the technology to harness these resources for improved quality of life is what we do best at Waller Marine, Inc. From
concept to installation, we provide comprehensive solutions to meet your needs.
We have an integrated team of some of the brightest engineers and naval architects with extensive knowledge in a variety of industries,
thinking outside of the box to design alternative offshore oil and gas solutions. Utilizing sound engineering we solve complex problems,
meeting or exceding regulatory standards.
As EPC Contractors, we have designed, constructed and installed Floating Power Plants using every available generating technology
for worldwide clientele. Waller Marine is a world leader in the creative design, engineering and construction of power barges.
The Margarita I and the Josefa Rufina I will become the world's largest floating power generation facility when installed side-by-side.
The two power barges were built at Signal International's shipyard in Orange, Texas. The generation facility is comprised of two floating
power plants and each is installed with a single GE 7FA gas turbine generator. The completed plant will generate much needed power
to Caracas, Venezuela and surrounding areas.

Launching of the vessels at Orange culminated a fast-track engineering, procurement and construction program undertaken by Signal
and Waller to design, construct and deliver the two power barges, each having an output of 171 MW (ISO). This was accomplished
within a 180-day period.
Constructed to approval and survey of the American Bureau of Shipping, each barge represents the largest of its kind in the world. This
first phase of the facility will surpass the capacity of the Waller-designed, 220 MW combined cycle floating power plant installed in India
in 2001; which heretofore has been the world's largest.

~Turning Challenges into Solutions~


Challenge us. We'll design a solution for you.
Our design portfolio includes a 220 MW combined cycle floating power plant using aero-derivative technology installed in Mangalore,
India Other designs that are in operation throughout the world use industrial turbines, heavy fuel diesel engines and steam turbines.
Current design work is being carried out on even larger power barges; a 520 MW combined cycle facility for U.S. installation and a

modularized Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant, using petcoke and coal gasification technology. Waller
Marine provides turnkey designs and project management services for barge-mounted power plants and full EPC services, from design
to installation.

Power barges were initially conceived as a means of monetizing stranded offshore natural gas, while simultaneously permitting offshore
oil production in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Interest is now being show by Independent Power Producers (IPPs) to generate
electrical power offshore in order to reduce the need for lengthy permitting applications needed for land based power plants.
A permanently moored semi-submersible platform with dimensions of 300 ft by 200 ft supports the power plant and it's associated
equipment. Design considers hurricane storm conditions and temporary loss of gas supply, with diesel storage to maintain generation
availability.Consideration is given to reducing pollution by installing selective catalytic reduction (SCR) units to reduce NOX on the
HRSGs.
The power plant may be operated similarly to any land based combined cycle generating facility, with on-board operators performing
similar functions. The multiple turbines, gas compressors and transformers built into the design provide a high degree of redundancy.
