Turkish Floating Plant Starts Power Supply to Sudan

(Anadolu Agency) Turkey’s floating power plant, the Karadeniz Powership Rauf Bey, started electricity production in Sudan, a member of the Istanbul-based Karadeniz Energy

Group, Karpowership, announced on May 22.
The powership, which has 180 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity, will supply 150 MW of power to Sudan’s national energy grid.
The plant is important for the stability of the country’s national grid as it caters for the country’s increased energy demand.
The company announced on April 27 that it signed an electricity production and sales agreement with the Sudanese Thermal Power Generating Company (STPGC).
Karpowership is the sole owner, operator and builder of the first powership fleet in the world. Since 2010, 15 powerships have been completed with total installed capacity exceeding 2,800 MW.
An additional 5,000 MW of powerships are either under construction or in the pipeline.
