Nice!:shock: And, not even an engine box to trip over.

So, if I put one of these in my 36' DE, think I could cruise around 50 kts or so? Might have to raise the sheer some...

Thanks for sharing Duke.

Nassco has been building that very similar plant in manyof thier new builds, it is a proven winner.

What purifiers are those? Don't look like Alpa laval. And to be that clean on 380 must have been a pic taken when it was very new......

What is the bore of the engine? Were there aux generators also or did you run 1 MAN in port for power?

Okayk, show & tell. In the words of Hooper in JAWS (during the drinking scene) "I got that beat...". GE 7FA+e gas turbine (175 Megawatts) burning #2 distillate - a LOT of it. I've often wondered why no one has tried to put a gas turbine in a DE yet. With only one moving part, should be pretty reliable - and sound really cool...

Love the diesel engine room pics! Thanks for posting them; looks 'ship shape'.

27 H&H with Cummins QSB 5.9 480 power
190,000 ton NASSCO SuezMax operated by ATC. I took these pictures on the ALASKAN EXPLORER. 2 engine rooms with this package in each. 4 engines into 2 variable speed electric shafts. 20 MW total.
600 bbls/day (25,000 gallons) IFO 380 @ 15 knots. This is off track for the forum but I figured we all like a clean engine room.....

Duke,

25,000 gallons/day ??
How big are the fuel tanks on this "boat" ??
