Floating Power Plants

Vard Marine is one of the world’s leading designers of floating power plants (FPPs). Drawing on our extensive experience in marine design and construction, we’ve developed many proven designs for efficient, economical, highly mobile power plants that are easy to produce, operate and maintain.

Vard Marine’s FPP design philosophy

At Vard Marine, we ultimately take pride in our bespoke approach to marine design.

To illustrate, each of our floating power plant designs begins as a collaboration with our client to define requirements. Building on our decades of experience and extensive portfolio, we fine-tune the design to meet your operational requirements, budget and timeline. Each design is, therefore, purposefully adapted to the conditions of the region where the vessel will operate.

The client advantage

In effect, the result of Vard Marine’s tailored design approach is an efficient design that offers high reliability, straightforward construction, and streamlined maintenance throughout the plant’s lifetime.

Engine ranges

Our power plant designs incorporate medium speed diesel engines capable of H.F.O. marine diesel or natural gas operation. These engines are an excellent choice for vessels up to 142 MW capacity.

To serve the market for power plants beyond 150 MW, we’ve also developed concepts for both simple and combined gas turbine cycle plants.

More than power

Our experienced teams can adapt the design of virtually any land-based processing plant for a floating application. These alternate uses range from municipal waste incineration plants to pulp mills and desalination plants.
