The propulsion equipment can be monitored and operated at the bridge control navigation console on the bridge, the engine control room console and the propulsion motor control panel in the engine room.
A pair of propulsion motors are equipped as a propulsion plant. The controllable pitch propeller is driven by these propulsion motors whose rotation is changeable between two speed modes. The electric power is supplied from three main generators and one harbor generator to the motors.

MACHINERY AUTOMATION SYSTEM
1. Safety operation and man-power saving
To reduce the engineers’ workload, the engine room is equipped with the latest facilities, which satisfy the requirements of the Japanese government. The propulsion motors and controllable pitch propeller are controllable from the bridge control console on the bridge and the engine control room console in the engine control room. ON-OFF control of auxiliary pumps and valves is also possible remotely from engine control room console. Color LCD panels enable monitoring of temperature, pressure, liquid level, etc.
