M/S "JUTLANDIA"

- part 2 -
 

- The Engine Room -



I mentioned in the beginning, that "JUTLANDIA" and her sister had in those days the most powerful diesel plant ever installed in a ship.
Later a Japanese ship was built with slightly more horsepower,- but that more powerful ship had "only" two engines,- while "JUTLANDIA" had three - - -
Therefore I have reason to believe, that the engine room of "JUTLANDIA",- and her sister-, were still the most impressive engine rooms around - - -
Therefore I will include some pictures from one of the mightiest engine rooms the World has ever seen - - -

And here it is!   The top platform of the biggest engine plant in the world -
To the left you see the port side engine with 9 cylinders, - and in the center you have the 12 cylinder engine,- and hidden behind it you can just see the starboard side, 9 cylinder engine,- totally 30 cylinders!
Those 3 main engines had 10 turbochargers,- and with 3 fuel injection valves per cylinder,- we have 90 fuel valves!
