Summary[edit]

Description
English: Opportunities to visit steam turbine powered ships are now few and far between and the recent scrapping of older passenger tonnage due to stricter SOLAS regulations has not helped. SS Margaret Hill was a liquefied natural gas carrier with the boilers fired on boil-off gas (BOG - yes really). The vessel was built in 1974 by Moss at Stavanger, Norway and fitted with a General Electric cross compound steam turbine of 30,400 horsepower and good for 19.5 knots.

This is the boiler control position with the two telescopes for checking smoke production.
