    Ok, Ok, I know, you want to see the Engine room.
    The Main Engines are 1900 Bhp each:




    3 Generators:




    The Electric Switchboard is in the open Engine Room:

    The Bridge equipment is at least a little more sophisticated and up to modern standard:







    But the lay-out does not indicate much understanding of the functions by whoever designed the panels.

    More sophisticated equipment:

    The other half of the fire bucket is on the opposite side.

    When you see electric fitting packed up in plastic, you know they are of high quality:

    A colleague was testing the Emergency Fire Pump:

    Portable Diesel driven pump. (Small ship so this is OK)

    More for those who like details, especially of towing vessel.
    Here is some pictures from a fairly new Anchor Handling Tug (Built in China 2009). The boat may be new but the level of technology is far from what is found on larger Offshore Vessels built in Europe, or for high end Operators.
    (Some pictures from a sister vessel was shown in the Tug thread earlier)

    No external pictures, since she was moored in the middle of a bunch of other tugs, with a "HK Barge" moored on Port side, but here is at least a view of the deck and superstructure:


    The Forecastle deck with the Windlass:

    No Mooring drums.

    The Main Switchboard for power distribution:


    Two RO Watermakers to slack the thirst of nearly 200 people:


    Time for some maintenance during idle period:


    Not too many pictures this time since my assignment didn't call for any.

    Let me take you on board the pride of the Brunei fleet, the Offshore Support Vessel (OSV) Belite Barakah.

    Built in Malaysia in 2008 and flying the flag of Brunei Darussalam, she is equipped as a Multi-purpose vessel, able to support Diving, ROV, Maintenance operations and pure Accommodation/Flotel role. (191 bunks)
    She has 4-point mooring system and DP-2 Class.
    The Helideck has actually never been used:


    The Pakarang view:

    Thank you for the detailed photos. I don't know if anyone else on the board likes so much detail but I certainly do.

    I would hate to be the crew if I ever get aboard; "what does this do?" "what's that?" "can I go in there?" ...

    That will have to do for this vessel. I took a total of 157 pictures for this survey, but that would be a bit boring as much of it was to show condition of individual Ballast Tanks, Cargo Holds and hull externals.
