Vessel of the Month
The arrangement grants the hospital, medical and rescue assistance areas a full independence and insulation from the rest of the vessel. Insulation, includ- ing an extremely low level of noise and vibrations, actually was required not just for comfort, but for meeting surgical and medical specifications.
While onboard safety remains a top priority, Izar also took into consideration the vessel's comfort, which is ensured by a pair of folding fin stabilizers. All the latest regulations for passenger ferries are met, including an ability to survive 500 mm water on the main deck.
A fully redundant propulsion plant comprises two independent engine rooms, with one engine in each, to drive twin retractable azimuthing propellers, and a large auxiliary engine supplies enough output for emergency propul- sion. The system, combined with a pair of flap rudders, guarantees improved maneuverability and steering, and reduced noise and vibration, even at very low speed.
With an operational range of 7,000 miles, the vessel has a service speed of 16.9 knots; a trial speed of 17.2 knots at 90 percent of the maximum engine rat- ing has been programmed.
