Engine Room

The two main engines, which each deliver 6 600 kW, take up the largest part of the engine room. These diesel engines drive a single, variable pitch propeller. The engine room houses generators that provide electrical power at sea or during a power blackout in harbour. It also houses fuel transfer pumps that can pump fuel from the cargo fuel to ship's fuel tanks, fuel purifying pumps, and hull and fire pumps that supply the various fire hydrants, for both water and foam, found on board.
