They may be old but very reliable and that is what you need!!!. We get 40,000Hrs from an engine before it is changer out.
Eeek those are old! Do you guys do a complete overhaul at 40k hrs? I work with everything in the 36 series(3606 to 3616s), 35 series(3508s to 3512s), and most our generators are 3412s with the E-Gens being 3406s. All the new boats are computer controlled, electronic injection engines(c280s and such).
Your job looks adventurous! Keep posting pictures! My friend wintered over at South Pole Station and your pictures remind me of that. Love them.
