Clockwork Solutions Inc. Validates >98% Operational Availability from Waller Marine’s Floating Power Generation Barge Design

Share Article

Waller Marine, a leading EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) firm, renowned for resolving extremely difficult technical and economic challenges in the maritime environment, entrusted Clockwork Solutions Inc. to perform a complex RAM (Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability) validation study on their design of the world’s largest floating power generation barge. Clockwork Solutions Inc. highly advanced life-cycle predictive modeling and simulation technology, a form of Predictive Analytics or Business Intelligence, accurately validated >98% Operational Availability from Waller Marine’s Robust Floating Power Generation Barge Design.

Clockwork’s unique technology and high fidelity life cycle predictive modeling and simulation capabilities were selected by Waller Marine to perform a RAM (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability) study to help Waller Marine accurately assess, validate, and optimize the future operational performance and provisioning requirements for Waller Marine’s latest floating power generation barge design.    Each barge is mounted with a GE 7FA Gas Turbine Power Plant capable of producing 171 MW a piece. These barges represent the world’s largest floating power generation barges.    Clockwork Solutions Inc. validated how Waller Marine’s robust design and sustainment provisioning can provide in excess of 98% operational availability, better than many land based power plants.
