Turkish company ready to supply electricity to Ukraine with floating power plants

Turkey’s Karpowership is planning to supply electricity to Ukraine via Moldova and Romania by placing its floating power plants there.

The relevant statement was made by Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We are negotiating the capacity of about 300-400 megawatts. Power ships can start the supply of electricity within a month after technical, commercial and safety details are finalized,” Karpowership Managing Director Zeynep Harezi told.

Initially, power ships were supposed to have been located near Odesa. But, as there are no safety guarantees, a decision was made to consider electricity supplies via third countries.

“We are holding talks with companies to find the right solution. There are power transmission lines between Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. We can deploy ships to Romania and Moldova, and supply electricity to Ukraine with transmission lines,” Harezi noted.

In her words, the UN is also involved in negotiations. Currently, the parties are negotiating the capacity of approximately 300-400 megawatts, which is enough to provide 1 million households with electricity.
