NEW NOTATION FOR floating power


Interest has been growing recently over the use of clean fuels in floating power facilities due to increased environmental regulatory pressures.

Bureau Veritas has recently issued a new set of requirements covering the assessment of floating units fitted with power generation equipment. Such units connected to the electricity grid must comply with Rule Note NR 656. They will be granted one of the following additional service features: POWERGEN(OIL) when the power plant use fuel oil as fuel; POWERGEN(LNG/NG) when the power plant uses natural gas (NG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel; and POWERGEN(DUALFUEL) when the power plant uses both oil and gas as fuel.
