    USC set to build floating electricity-generating facilities running on LNG supplied by bunkering ships

    United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) together with Korall CDB has developed projects of floating electricity-generating facilities running on LNG with capacity of 40 MW and 80 MW, IAA PortNews correspondent cites USC President Aleksey Rakhmanov as telling journalists.

    According to USC head, capital investments per kW in these projects is estimated at $1,200-1,300 which is comparable to conventional energy projects.

    The projects foresee the construction of a series of bunkering ships of 2,000 cbm in capacity. 

    USC expects the orders from both Russian and foreign partners. The project has already entered the pre-contract phase, says USC President.

    40MW platform designed as a relatively small barge can be built by virtually any USC shipyard able to produce river-sea class ships. 80MW platform features larger dimensions and can be built by larger shipyards of USC. Bunkering ships are also to be built by USC.

    United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC OJSC) is the largest shipbuilding company in Russia. It was set up in 2007 with 100% federal ownership. The holding comprises 40 companies and organizations (major shipbuilding and shiprepairing companies as well as leading design bureaus). Currently, USC consolidates the bulk of the domestic shipbuilding complex. The Russian market is the main focus of the state corporation though it also exports its products to 20 countries worldwide.
