Barge Operators

Barge Operators. A Purpose Built Case in Point.

Problem:
Supporting 40 containers on a barge, in an “unmanned” environment, without access to reliable power for 2-3 days continuously, requires high horsepower, yet fuel-efficient power pack solutions.

Solution:
Power Pool Plus designed and built a custom, dual engine solution to support failover operation (operation on one engine at a time, switching between the two in case of a failure). The solution included (2) 400 kW gen sets, installed in a 40 ft. ISO container with a shared 1500 gallon fuel tank. Since the solution was going to be shipboard, Power Pool Plus designed double-walled fuel tanks, an automatic fire suppression system, and emergency lighting.
