  • This is the engine room (Workshop)

  • This is the engine room (Engine Control Room)

  • This is also the engine room (Shaft)

  • Today ima show you around the ship's Engine Room (Main Engine)

  • As always we will need some safety gear

  • most importantly earplugs because the Engine room sounds like this

  • There's a few entrances; the most used one is from Engine Control Room

  • So lets start off from there A good number of computer systems & control

  • panels are linked to the Engine Control Room so that the engineer can work their magic

  • from here

  • Through the fire door, we're into the actual engine space

  • Let's start off with main course, the main engine

  • The whole engine is massive, 4 deck high It can produce 80,000 horse power, up to 25knots

  • in flat seas Forget about puny v12 Lamborghini engine,

  • our ship is also v12 but the pistons rod alone are twice the size

  • of a human And you know what they say about large rods,

  • that the cylinders are even bigger

  • You might be wondering where's all the crew?

  • Well unlike the past or future all cargo ships now days, except for passenger

  • and military are designed for minimum manning

  • We are talking about twenty something people here on a 400-meter ship.

  • At the back is the fly wheel All that POWER is transferred to the propellers

  • through the shaft And the big block is what we call a shaft

  • generator At a high enough RPM we won't even need

  • to use diesel generators at all to power the entire ship

  • Speaking of diesel generators, we 've got 5 of them

  • Theres numerous machinery systems in the engine room

  • As a deck officer, some of them I didn't even know it existed

  • But I can definitely bring you to the few important ones

  • Remember my first vlog where I went into the duct keel?

  • As you can see the machines are placed in a way with only economics and safety in mind

  • There's no decorations at all, no room for luxury

  • The systems are in their pure raw metal form for simple execution

  • And the engine workshop is no exception, it's big and its well-equipped

  • With the workshop's equipment we can cut, we can weld, we can build anything we need

  • while we're at sea Not to mention we already have spare parts

  • for almost every machine on the ship Now we've been to all parts of the engine

  • room, except for one secret hidden passage way

  • Once the hero enter, there's no turning back

  • The emergency escape is at the bottom deck near the shaft

  • and it provides another means of escape other the entrances

  • However!

  • Its quite a climb

  • Once you've made it to the very top you'll

  • come out onto the upper decks of the ship

  • So that was a brief tour

  • check out my Instagram as I travel around world and you'll see my live updates straight

  • from the ship Let me know down in the comments below if

  • you got any questions And as always see you next time.
