The floating power plant is a combination of marine technology and power generation. It offers a flexible and decentralized power generation. Floating power plants eliminate the need for infrastructure and pre-feasibility studies, as needed in the case of onshore power plants. Floating power plants provide certain advantages such as the fast supply of electricity to areas with limited infrastructure, they can be relocated to the areas where the electricity is needed, these power plants require lesser space as compared to land-based power plants, and provide secure power supply in case of earthquakes and floods. Islands that are deprived of power and cannot build power plants can use floating power plants as a supply method. Existing cargo ship or ship can be used as a floating power plant eliminating the need for investment to be made in new ones.

On the basis of fuel type, the global floating power plant market can be segmented into renewable and non-renewable. Renewable sources are further segmented into solar and wind. Non-renewable are further segmented into gas turbine, IC engine, and others. The shift towards cleaner energy will set the renewable segment to grow in the coming years. On the basis of capacity, the global floating power plant market can be segmented into up to 50MW, 50MW – 100MW, 100MW – 300MW, and above 300MW. Depending upon the need the floating power plant delivers the required amount of power.
