The PETER was built as an ASD 2411® (Azimuth-Stern-Drive)with two Rolls-Royce Aquamaster US255 thrusters at the stern. mit den Antrieben unter
To enhence the course stability and steering forces there is a skeg along the keel. The rear one third of this
keel is open to reduce the force of the prop wash. The propellers of the US255 have a diameter of 2600mm.
The two thrusters are driven by a pair of Caterpillar 3516B TA HD/D engines. Each engine develops a total of 2,800 bhp.
These engines give the Peter a speed of 12.5 knots ahead and 12 knots astern, with a bollard pull of 70 ton(m) ahead and 63.8 ton(m) astern.
The tank capacities are: fuel oil 74,8m3, fresh water 8,6m3.
On the afterdeck of the Peter thier is no towing winch, but a massive T-shaped bollard.
Just beside this bollard is a electrically driven capstan a Ridderinkhof capstan with a pull of 5 ton(m) and a hauling speed of 15m/min.
At the stern in front of the bulwark there is another bollard. On port side as well as on starbord an emergency hatch to the engine room is fitted.
The forecastle deck has the same height like the afterdeck.
n this deck is a combined anchor and towing winch made by Ridderinkhof. This double drum winch has a hauling force of 30 ton(m) at 8m/min or
9ton(m) at 33m/min and a brake load of 150ton(m). Each of the two anchors are of the HHP type and has a weight of 360 kg.
Forward of the winch you find the huge towing bollard.
On the bridgedeck you will only find the two life rafts and a life bouy on each side of the bridge.
At the rear end of the bridge a ac-unit is fitted. On the portside of the wheelhouse a small ladder leads to the top deck.
Below the the raised floor at the fore end of the wheelhouse there are the accesses to a small electronic compartment.
Two consoles with all control elements are located parallel to the ship's center line. Between these consoles there is a sliding seat.
In front of the captains chair and below the ceiling radarscreens are fitted. The navigational equipment contains two radio sets, NAvtex, AIS and DGPS.
