The system consists of two diesel engines that drive two controllable pitch propellers by means of particular person gearboxes. These gearboxes are geared up with PTI/PTO models that can be utilized for both electrical propulsion (sluggish speeds) or for producing electrical power to function the vessel at greater speeds.

Blue can be geared up with an electrical Azimuth pod drive, which in electrical mode can be utilized individually, or when the PTI models are engaged, with the 2 propeller shafts.

To generate much less noise and vibration, and scale back nitrogen oxide ranges, Blue is provided with a state-of-the-art exhaust after-treatment system. Furthermore, the wastewater remedy plant is provided with new membrane expertise that permits the handled wastewater to be safely disposed of in ‘drinking-water high quality’.
