The Engine Room

The Engine Control Room

First some pictures from the engine control room.
This is the first place you arrive to when going down the stairs and entering the engine room compartment.
The engine control room on "Emma Jebsen" is not very big, but like all other engine control rooms, this is in fact the nerve- and brain center of the ship.
This is where everything on the ship is switched on or off, - where everything begins and ends, - and where the whole idea of a ship, - going from "A" to "B", and getting cargo in and out -, is controlled.

The Auxiliary Engine Room

From the engine control room, you enter into the enclosed auxiliary engine room, where 3 diesel driven generators supply the ship with electric power.
