Australia's mobile biodiesel facility the first in the world

What if instead of transporting crops to the biodiesel refinery, you could just move the refinery to wherever crops were ready for harvest? That's now possible thanks to the world's first mobile biodiesel refinery unveiled last week. The facility was built by Natural Fuels Australia Limited.
"This is the first time anywhere in the world that a large-scale biodiesel plant has been built with the specific intention of transporting it to another site," said Francis Logan Australia's Science and Innovation Minister. The plant cost $11 million and will be used in Darwin, where the site conditions for the facility were "challenging". The plant will be shipped to Darwin pretty much ready to go. The question is, though, how do they power the ocean ship they're using to move the facility?
