Main Engine

The motor(s) running the propulsion system. Main engines run on Diesel-/Gas-Oil or Intermediate Fuel Oil (IFO) of different qualities. Ships using IFO, the fuel has to be heated before it can be injected into the cylinders. FAIRPLAY tugs are running only on gas oil. This tape of fuel is considered to be the best for the environment and keeps the maintainance on a reasonably low level.

FAIRPLAY’s is mainly using engines of Deutz http://www.deutz.de/ and MAK http://www.mak.de/.
