It is noted as being the largest monohull crane ship in the world and as representing the latest special-purpose propulsion and power generation application for the diesel engines made by the W.H. Allen Company, UK. The vessel is a single-fuel ship and the Allen engines will start, stop and run at all load levels on residual fuel. During heavy-lift sea trials a maximum lift of 4400 tons was achieved. Details on main machinery are given, as well as information on the equipment used to maintain stability, keep a station, and carry out anchoring.
