Cascade to Build 120MW Power Barge

Wednesday, August 18, 1999
Cascade General was awarded the contract for construction of a 120MW power barge for MAN B&W Diesel AG of Augsberg, Germany. The floating diesel power station will be built for operation in Guatemala, and is a self-contained mobile power generation unit comprised of seven MAN B&W type 18V 48/60 diesel generators mounted on a deck barge which measures 279 x 204 x 11.8 ft. "This is a large - and in many ways significant - project, which shows Cascade General's ability to compete in the international market for newbuilds," said Cascade executive vice-president Suren Menon. "This contract confirms that our modernization and restructuring of work practices at Portland Shipyard has moved us in the right direction." The seven generating sets will be housed in an engine hall, which will be prefabricated at Cascade General. A steel deckhouse structure will accommodate control room, offices, workshops, supplies and electrical facilities. Siemens has been tapped to supply all generators, switchgear and transformers. The overall barge design was supplied by Kvaerner Masa Marine.
