Main Engine - 10 Cylinders

Note the 3rd Engineer on the deck of the engine. Main Engine alone weighs over 1700 tons; uses about 200 tons of bunker oil (Heavy Fuel Oil) each day (around 180,000 litres);the engine is capable of producing 74,600 horsepower at 101 revolutions per minute. The ship can easily reach 26 knots, equal to about 48 kmh, in the open sea. At times we travelled at 23 knots; most of the time at 19 knots.
