Turkiye signed memorandum of understanding with Ukraine for electricity supply

Turkish firm Karpowership has signed a memorandum of understanding with state-owned trader JSC Energy Company of Ukraine (ECU) to enhance electricity supply cooperation and fast-track the use of 500 megawatts (MW) floating power stations to alleviate the nation’s energy crisis, according to a statement on Thursday.

Karpowership and ECU will work alongside national and international organizations to develop and finance the implementation of 500 MW, enough to power over 1 million households.

Mooring in the Black Sea offshore Moldova and Romania with electricity connecting to Ukraine’s grid via transmission lines are among the options being considered for floating power stations. Karpowership and ECU will engage Moldovan and Romanian authorities to assess the viability of these two options. The company has 36 powerships with a total capacity reaching 6 gigawatts.

Karpowership already operates across Africa, in New Caledonia and, and Brazil and has been in talks with several European countries to supply as much as 2 GW of electricity via powerships to help ease the region’s energy crisis.
