Trinidad and Tobago’s energy minister Stuart Young and Şander Gürbüz, board advisor at Istanbul-based Karpowership, met in Port of Spain.
The Turkish company presented its floating power plant vessels, which, according to Karpowership, range from 30MW to 470MW and can be delivered in less than 60 days.
“Flexibility was a key component addressed as these ships can be relocated to different locations as well as switch between different fuel types depending on the availability and affordability of fuels,” the ministry said in a statement.
Gürbüz was accompanied by Bengü Yiğitgüden, Turkey’s ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago.
In the region, Karpowership previously secured contracts in an emergency call held in Brazil and recently landed a contract in the Dominican Republic’s process to procure 400MW.
