Indico - Engine Room











Indico by V. Díez García
    On these photos the main engine is painted on yellow, a strange colour for a engine. Maybe they did not find any better use for it.
    This photo shows the main engine "control", that was only a telegraph, the maneovering controls (air and fuel) and some pressure gauges.
    There is also an Oiler, Jesús.

    Here there is a better view of the "control", and an accusing bucket to collect some leakage.

    This is one of the auxiliary engines, a MTM. There were two, one on each side, that moved a dynamo. There was a third auxiliary engine, a Deutz, that was aft aloft the tail shaft.

    This view shows the rockers of the main engine Burmeister & Wain.

    And here can be seen the turbochargers. The exhaust collector and the turbochargers were really well painted.

    In the background is the electric switchboard and also can be seen the Engine Room ceiling. It was designed for the original submarine engines and was too low for the Burmeister & Wain engine. Due to that for removing the pistons, to carry out the maintenance, was necessary to tilt them.
