3 (three) 430kW Deutz engines which drive 3 DC generators which provide power for 1 (one) 816kW MPM (Main Propulsion Motor), they also provide power for the forward DC windlass and the bow thruster.

These engines also drive 3 AC generators which provide the 380v 3 phase and 220v single phase power through all the other systems on board.

In addition there are 2 x harbour generators which provide AC power for the vessel either at anchor or alongside for quieter more efficient generation when the MPM or other DC powered units are not required.

One of the major benefits of a diesel electric system is that the engines/power units do not need to be positioned aft but theoretically anywhere as all one needs is some wiring to go back to the propulsion motor which is situated way aft with a short and much quieter shaft than one which has a long run through the vessel.
