Project OMEGA is an offshore low carbon electrical power generation project for the UK using existing proven technologies and biofuels as the primary fuel source. The project will assist the United Kingdom in a joined up thinking approach for power generation to assist in bridging the coming base load energy shortfall. EnviroShips can be built quickly unlike onshore power stations.
The EnviroShip is a floating mobile power station moored offshore with the capability to produce 184MW of electrical power using a number of gas turbines and electrical generators installed onto the deck of the EnviroShip. Electrical cabling will be linked to the EnviroShip to enable the power to be entered into the national grid system. The project will have the capacity to add additonal ships to create a fleet for safe offshore power generation.
