Transport geek overdose!!!

* faints *

The Dream had been possible thanks to Priano Marchelli Logistics and Blue Water Shipping ...so Cruise & Marine Logistic Network belonging to both Companies.

I doubt they shipped the whole engine, because each engine is supposeedly an 12000 KW Wartsila 12v46. That is a 175 ton engine...25 tons beyond the capability of the newer AN-124.

Perhaps they are re-using some components from the burnt engine? Intake Manifolds, etc?

Neat pics! Thanks!

An article at www.cruisebusiness.com says the engine was 96 tons; the generators were 110 tons. There are also more photos of the AN-124 with this cargo.
