Main engine installation
This video shows the engine being lifted into the hull at our Bosund facility. The 405kW (550hp), six-cylinder Scania unit will drive a forward-facing pull propeller set on a leg which can rotate through 340 degrees. The diesel engine, which is fitted with the latest exhaust gas treatment system (Selective Catalytic Conversion/SCR) weighs around 1200kg and is carefully positioned using our overhead cranes.
