Imagine a world with access to electricity and clean water – a world with less pollution, less noise disturbances and sufficient resources. A tough challenge and also a necessity when looking at the world’s growing population and climate change. But this is the world that Siemens Energy wants to fit in – with SeaFloat, the new mobile floating power plant.
We have taken up the idea of floating power plants and brought our latest, highly efficient gas turbine frames on to floating devices, thus defining a new class of floating power plants. The evolution of open and combined cycle power plants from land to sea are based on our successful - gas turbines series (e.g. SGT-800, or SGT-8000H) - proven steam turbine series (e.g. SST-600, SST-5000) as well as our reliable generator series (e.g. SGen-100A, SGen-2000P).
Mobility, flexibility and no need for land acquisition are the most prominent features which distinguish SeaFloat power plants from conventional land-based plants. These features come along with short lead time due to high prefabrication grade and enhanced plug & play concept as well as reduced overall project investments making them interesting for various applications.
It is possible to electrify remote areas with mobile SeaFloat power plants enabling deployment and development and pushing economic growths in these areas.
Being able to provide fast power, countries facing catastrophes such as hurricanes or earthquakes can be supported quickly. Mobile SeaFloat power plants can help to rebuild countries suffering from damaged or destroyed infrastructure, bringing hope to the people and financial securities to banks and lenders.

The turbine is the core component of highly efficient gas-fired power plants, designed for 665 MW at 61% efficiency in combined cycle operation.
The SCC5-8000H SeaFloat power plant consists of a single-lift gas turbine generator package, and a single-lift package for the steam turbine generator package with condenser.
Within the HRSG steel structure, flexible elements absorb deflections, while a compensator decouples the gas turbine from the HRSG.
