Waller Marine Completes Offshore Power Plant, Receives ABS Certification

Waller Marine, Inc. of Houston, Texas, has recently completed the design for an innovative self-elevating platform power plant. The design utilizes two existing jackup offshore drilling rigs, after having removed the drilling equipment, with each unit supporting the separate components of a 150 MW combined cycle generating facility.

The first platform will be fitted with three GE LM6000 gas turbine packaged generating sets, with a combined simple cycle output of 120 MW. This self-contained unit will provide power to a West African community. It will be joined by the second platform outfitted with exhaust heat recovery boilers, and a 40-MW steam turbine generation plant, for connection to the gas turbines permitting a gross facility output of 160 MW. The platforms should both be completed in mid-1996.

Waller Marine has also received certification from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) to conduct thickness measurement surveys on all ABS-classed vessels, including gauging of tankship and bulk carrier structures subject to an enhanced survey. The company can also perform thickness surveys on tank barges subject to structural evaluation after 30 years of service.

Waller Marine, Inc. is a naval architecture and marine consulting firm that serves the domestic and international marine industry with design, project management, surveys and owner representation.
