we had 150,000HP.... but the 20,000HP diesel made far more vibrations that the pair of 55,000HP turbines....Sure it would be nice if the containers could be a little sharper and you might be able to figure a way to achieve that, possibly by mounting the camera to some surface iof the ship and using IS
A 20,000 HP engine on a seagoing vessel makes a fair bit of vibration, and you also get flex over the vessel. hard mounting the camera to the ship makes it worse.... we ended up using mounts that clamped onto a post and a 2" thick rubber plate to cut down on vibration.
Try 50,000+ HP
Sounds like a Dynamic Positioning Dive Support or Offshore vessel? One main engine and the Turbines when on station? I work on large merchant vessels so totally different scene. One massive engine. One used 170 tons of heavy fuel a day.
Yeah, turbines are much smoother. I once heard Diesel engines described as the best way to turn fuel into noise
