A hydroelectric power generating plant includes separate barges upstream and downstream of a dam, and a siphoning penstock attached to and spanning between the barges to enable fluid communication over the dam and to appropriate power generating equipment. In constructing the power generating plant, the barges and penstock are constructed remotely at a convenient manufacturing facility and either floated to the dam site over water, or transporated to the dam site over land. At the dam site the barges are positioned so as to span the dam, and moored in position, and the siphoning penstock is connected to and between the barges using trunnion supports which enable respective pivotal movement.
