An early powership was the USS Saranac, a former US Navy naval ship. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saranac was a 1942 built fleet oiler before her conversion into a powership following the Second World War to serve in the US Navy and Army. A powership, or power ship, is a special purpose marine vessel, on which a power plant is installed to serve as a power generation resource. Unlike power barges, which are power plants on pontoons, powerships are more flexible floating power plants due to their ability to sail on the high seas and travel longer distances. Converted from existing bulk carriers, the powerships are self propelled, ready to go infrastructure for developing countries that plug into national grids where required. Bureau Veritas, an international certification agency with experience in overseeing both shipbuilding and power plant development, classifies such floating power plants as "special service power plants".
