Industry News


Island nations find it difficult to build power plants owing to lack of adequate lands. The prospect of renewable sources of energy production seem lucrative but seem a far-away dream owing to the lack of connectivity between islands. Floating power plants seem the best viable and feasible option in this scenario. For instance, Rosatom, the Russian federal nuclear company, has built a floating power plant to tackle fluctuating power supply problems for regions relying solely on wind and solar energy. The reactors can generate 70 MW of electricity monthly. Seeing Russia’s success, China and France are also planning to construct power plants within the next two years.


The Seafloat team of Siemens are developing ideas to create a floating power plant. Unpredictability of natural calamities such as tsunamis and typhoons can disrupt the power supply of island nations, but these power plants can resurge these economies till they become financially active again.
