POWER BARGE FOR SALE:
TURBINE-96MW-BARGE-GAS-WESTINGHOUSE-UNUSED 1997 MODEL # W-251
CAND BE USED CONTINIOUS POWER 24/7
Approx. size is 70 metres long, 26 beam, 4.3 Draught. and the bonus for ten. Gross weight 2700 tonnes.

There are two 48-MW Westinghouse W-251 Turbine generators on one barge.
The total barge output is, of course, 96-MW of power with the two W251′s mounted
side by side on the deck of a single barge.

Barge Condition and Completion Status

A general condition survey was performed on the barge, which included all visible external surfaces, a visual inspection from deck level of 75% of tanks (random selection) and an internal inspection of two tanks (random selection).

Both hull bottom and topsides were found to be in good condition and ready for service, corrosive preventative coating intact and sacrificial anodes fitted.

Note:
These anodes appear to have been fitted to the hull since our last visit to the site in March 2000.

An inspection of the deck revealed a substantial portion of the deck with no holding primer. Due to the climate, corrosion does not develop quickly but this would need to be addressed if lay-up was to continue for a long period.

It is estimated that around 2% of the total deck area has a more advanced level of corrosion, this is where rainwater has settled on deck plating and this should be addressed before pitting becomes obvious.

Tank inspections revealed a good standard of finish with no breakdown in surface coatings, the surface coating specification is considered to be of a standard consistent with the barge’s intended trade. Some tanks were found to have collected rainwater and if the barge is to remain laid up for a prolonged period it is recommended that the plugs be removed and tank lids to be placed “loose” over tank apertures.

The overall impression of is one of well-designed barge for its intended use with construction carried out to a good standard.

There were few documents available to support the build period and NKK visits to the yard in connection with the barge, however, it is considered that the barge is ready for NKK classification acceptance survey.

Power Plant Condition and Completion Status

The gas turbines have already partially been fitted out for distillate and heavy fuel firing but future conversion to natural gas, naphtha, or dual firing should present no major problems.

The barge is not fitted with any ‘black start’ facility to power the electric start motors or fuel/lubricating oil pumps and deck space is somewhat limited, so if such ‘black start’ facility is required for future projects this should probably be mounted on an adjacent barge or installed onshore.

The gas turbines, generators, pipe racks and starter motors have all been mounted and bolted to pedestals which are welded to large box beams which have been constructed from 2” thick steel plate.

The box beams have internal longitudinal and transverse stiffening and each box beam is supported on the main deck of the barge at 4 locations.

Each support location is designed to house the spring support units.

Note:
1. There has been no corrosion preventative coatings applied internally to the box beams to date and this should be addressed in order to prevent further deterioration.

2. The cable tray assembly bolts being of mild steel have now started to corrode and are now the cause of an electrolytic reaction which has set up due to the galvanized trays themselves being of a dissimilar metal. Preventative measures should be taken immediately in order to help preserve the asset.

3. The external appearance of (most) deck-mounted piping would suggest that internal corrosion is also under way and it would be reasonable to assume that all or most of this pipe work would now need to be replaced before plant commissioning due to the risk of internal corrosion.

We were advised that dehumidifiers had been energised throughout the construction and lay-up period although there are no records to support this.

Some items have been removed from the control panel cabinets by the previous owners and these items are listed separately.

There is also as yet no switchyard equipment installed, although the main step-up transformers are already in place on their mountings. A detailed assessment of the condition of the transformers should also be undertaken by specialist electrical contractors (or the OEM) to assess the extent and condition of any long term preservation which has been applied (or should now be attempted).

The overall standard of mechanical and electrical installation work on the barge is very good, perhaps even with some degree of ‘overkill’ with regard to mountings and fastenings.

It is estimated that mechanically (i.e. apart from equipment removed to a Sister Barge in Far East) the barge is now about 85% complete.
* We just ran across an unbelievably great deal for 2 Power Generation Plants on a Barge that are “new unused” located at a port in the Far east. It’s System is 50 hertz the same as Viet Nam’s and most of the Far East. (The US Power System is 60 hertz).
CAN BE USED CONTINIOUS POWER 24/7
Barge-Approx. size is 70 metres long, 26 beam, 4.3 Draught. and the bonus for ten. Gross weight 2700 tonnes.

There are two 48-MW Westinghouse W-251 Turbine generators on one barge. The total barge output is, of course, 96-MW of power with the two W251′s mounted side by side on the deck of a single barge.

They each have the capacity to generate 48 MW each (mega watts) (TOTAL POWER 96 MW) of power which could provide power for 40,000 people in the US.

They were ordered for a project and never used. The fuel for these is Natural Gas but can converted to “dual fuel” natural gas & diesel for additional cost. These “Power Plants” can be anchored off shore at a port or up a river. If you have any people who are interested let me know. The beauty of power barges like this is that you don’t have wait 3 to 5 years to build a new power plant because you can literally tow them to where you want them and turn them on.

The only information the Administrator will release is a two page document (as attached) describing the general condition as of June 2003. The company who completed the survey is a well known in the Power Barge Industry and are currently trying to broker a deal as we speak.

The full inspection report is available for $9,500.00 USD and cost of doing
another $19,500 USD.

“Each of our specific Inspection and Valuation Reports on “Power Barge” were carried out under Confidentiality Agreements, so we could offer you following two alternatives:

1. An updated desk-top Valuation Report, based on our most recent inspection (June 2003), which would cost around US$9,500.

2. A comprehensive Inspection and Valuation Report, to include updated inspection at site, and comparative valuation based on present World market demand, etc.
Total Cost = US $19,500.

This would include all travel and accommodation, time and disbursements, etc.
Further to this, the same company has provided information that it is not fully converted for Heavy Fuel Oil, a new treatment plant is quoted at $1.9 Million to $2.0Million, and the commissioning cost without dry tow and knowing site requirements of 8M to 10M. The asking Price of the Power Barge is USD $ 9.6 Million Each-Port of Location without buyer/seller commissions. These cannot be negotiated without confirmed solid interest.

Any further information required please let me know and I will see what I can do.
