Nice and informative write up.

Does BW policy permit uploading of ship specific data and photographs on a public forum ?

No confidential or sensitive information has been posted. Most of this information is freely available on the websites of the manufacturers of various equipments etc. Besides this is a very common design of ship.

The maximum speed is 14.5 Knots (26.854 Kmph). We usually maintain an average of 13 Knots (24.076 Kmph). At this speed our fuel consumption is around 19 Metric Tons per day. That works 577.824 Km for 19222 Litres or 0.03 Kmpl. And yes that is fuel efficient. Hope my calculations are correct. Mathematicians please check.
What does the fuel consumption work out in terms of grammes/ kw/ hour? Thanks in advance for the data.

Ours is a MAN B&W 6S50ME-B9.3.

And I completely forgot about posting the photos of the engine room. Will be doing that too shortly.
