hold are tank spaces, including double-bottom fuel tanks and the RSW tank, and the research vessel’s large machinery space. Propulsion power comes from a single Cummins QSK38-M engine with the heavy duty rating of 1,400 hp at 1,800 rpm. This drives a fixed pitch propeller through a 6:1 reduction Hitachi Nico/Twin Disc MG-5506 gearbox. Mentrade supplied the propeller, stern tube, shafting and rudder package. Engine control and steering systems are from Kobelt.   The machinery space also houses a pair of 150kW, 50Hz generators powered by Cummins QSB7-DM engines and the two 75kW hydraulic power
