KPS-5 KAYA BEY (IMO 7925546)










She was built by the Ishibras Shipyard of Verolme Estaleiros Reunidos do Brasil at Angra dos Reis, Brazil as a bulk carrier in October 1983.

She was launched as EL AMAAN for Seacloud Maritime Inc (UK).



In 1988 she was sold to Ulugan Bay Sg Inc (UK) and continued under the name EL AMAAN.



In 1991 she was bought by Helica SA and here she changed flag to Switzerland and was renamed ST-CERGUE.

In 2000 she was bought by Tofelino Sg Co Ltd and renamed KAMARI and sailed under the Cyprus flag.



In 2009 she was bought by KPS Karadeniz Powership Co Ltd.

The originally bulk carrier was converted into a Powership and renamed KPS-5 KAYA BEY. The vessel is registered under the Liberian flag with homeport Monrovia.



In November 2010 the Powership with 216 MW generation power set sail to Karachi, Pakistan also carrying humanitarian aid for the victims of the 2010 Pakistan floods.

She bridged electricity shortage supplying around 20% of the power demand of the 12-million population city of Karachi for a five-year term. The Powership burns heavy fuel oil (HFO), the only available energy resource in Pakistan.

After serving in Pakistan, the Powership supplied electricity to Iraq.

In Port Umm Quasr, Iraq in 2015.

Do you understand what I am publishing?

I think I made it pretty easy.

Excuse me, there are countries that have lawsuits with this company for not having paid, but I do not publish that.

That is for the lawyers and judges, I publish where the ships or the power generating barges worked.

NORMAND VESTER was eventually acquired in 2017 by Karpowership , a subsidiary of Karadeniz Holding, for the purpose of converting her into a floating power plant sailing under the Liberian flag.

The NORMAND VESTER was converted into a Powership with a generation capacity of 40 MW at Hat-San Shipyard in Altinova, Yalova.



In 2018 it was completed and launched under the name KPS-54 BARIŞ BEY.

As a result of the agreement signed between KarPowerShip and the Cuban Ministry of Energy in October 2018', two power ships were established that will provide electricity to the country.

The two ships, Esra Sultan and Baris Bey, will provide power to Cuba for 51 months.

The ships arrived in Cuba at the beginning of 2019, on top of the ZHEN HUA 33 ship.



And it is generating electricity of Cuba.




In October 2018, Karpowership signed a contract with the Cuban Ministry of Energy to deploy 6 Powerships.

The 6 Karpowership has been operational in Cuba since 2019 and has been supplying 50% of the total electricity needs of the cement factory and port.

The KPS-54 BARIŞ BEY was installed in La Boca, Cuba and is powering the town and the cement factory while the old power plant is being renovated.

The upgrade of the old plant is updated by Karadeniz Holding and will be inaguarated in 2 years.

I am not defending or publicizing this company, on the contrary I am publicizing how simple tugboats or tankers were used to build floating power plants.

This company went through several countries and I was astonished about Indonesia... I will publish this later.

KPS-9 SUHEYLA SULTAN (ex Fatmagül Sultan) (IMO 0000000)









Built as an electric barge by the Sedef shipyard in Tuzla (Istanbul) in 2013, it was renamed KPS-9 FATMAGUL SULTAN in honor of the sister of Karadeniz Holding's chairman.



The Orca-class vessels, with a maximum capacity of 235 MW, are 140 meters long and 42 meters wide and are designed with the latest technology.
Our Powerships consist of Dual-Fuel engines, on-board high-voltage substation, on-board fuel storage and on-board accommodations. With a depth of only 3 meters, they can easily enter the ports of the countries where they will generate power.

The Powership left Turkey on February 8, 2013 bound for Lebanon.

She arrived at her destination after a week's journey.



Following a ceremony held in Beirut in early April 2013 in the presence of Gebran Bassil , Lebanese Minister of Energy and Water, the Powership began supplying 188 MW of electricity to the grid in Lebanon, where demand for electric power grew more than expected from 2011 through increased consumption and the influx of refugees from the Syrian Civil War.



Over a three-year period, at least 15% of the country's electricity needs are generated by our fleet power.

The contract expired in September 2021, while Électricité du Liban owed Karpowership overdue payments in excess of $100 million. Powership has stopped its supplies on 1 October 2021.



In November 2021 it arrives at Karmarine Shipyard in Yalova, Turkey.
The KPS-9 FATMAGUL SULTAN undergoes major upgrades, with the addition of new power generators, from 9 to 12 generators.

It is renamed KPS-9 SUHEYLA SULTAN.



In January 2023 it was shipped to Cuba and arrived in Havana in February.
To reinforce the capacities of the National Electric System (SEN).
 The Karadeniz Powership vessel has a generating capacity of 240 megawatts, while the others, distributed between the port of Mariel and Havana, together generate 500 MW.






In October 2018, Karpowership signed a contract with the Cuban Ministry of Energy to deploy 6 Powerships.

KPS-9 SUHEYLA SULTAN arrives in 2023, was installed in La Habana, Cuba and is powering the town and the port while the old power plant is being renovated.

The upgrade of the old plant is updated by Karadeniz Holding and will be inaguarated in 2 years.

If you see they have marked it as Karadeniz Powership "Irem Sultan" but that one was in 2022 look:



I hate that people mark ships afloat in GOOGLE MAPS, if they move, or worse that they make them in 3D, they make a little square drawing and cover the original ship.

Hi Geir
The OCEAN KARADENIZ imo: 9243370 that one I don't have in my list.
It was sold to Karadeniz in 2020/21, these people don't scrap ships, if they buy them it's to do something else.
Renamed 'Ocean Karadenis' and registered in Monrovia, with plans to be be rebuilt for the use as a floating power station. The new owners are Karpowershipyard Rauf Bey Co. (Karmarine Karadeniz Denizcilik ve Ticaret AS), Istanbul.

KPS ERIN SULTAN (IMO 0000000)









The Erin Sultan energy ship of Karpowership, one of the Turkish energy company Karadeniz Energy Group companies, was built in Italy in 1984.

The ship was converted into a power ship in 2014 at the Sedef Shipyard in Tuzla.



The power plant of the 23,990 gross tonnage, 157.78m long and 30m wide ship consists of 6 MAN 18V51/60 DF-dual fuel engine-generator sets.

There are 6 HRSG (Heat Recovery Steam Generators) combined with the exhaust stack of each engine to drive 2×10 MW steam turbine-generator sets and generate steam.

The total capacity of the ship is 110 MW.





In October 2018, Karpowership signed a contract with the Cuban Ministry of Energy to deploy 6 Powerships.

KPS ERIN SULTAN arrives in 2022, was installed in La Habana, Cuba and is powering the town and the port while the old power plant is being renovated.



In 2023 many wondered why the KPS ERIN SULTAN is not in Havana.
Because the large power generating barge KPS-9 SUHEYLA SULTAN was already working there.



The KPS ERIN SULTAN was towed from Havana to its new location in Santiago de Cuba.
