VIDEO: Disney Wish Floating Engine Room At Port of Emden – November 1, 2020

The Disney Wish’s floating engine room unit (FERU) arrived in the Port of Emden this weekend following it’s journey through the Keil Canal after leaving the Neptun Werft shipyard in Rostock, Germany. The video below from the Ems -Dollart Media YouTube channel offers a number of close up views of the Disney Wish’s FERU while docked at the port.

The Disney Wish’s FERU will eventually be towed to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany where the Disney Wish will continue to take shape.

    Couldn’t help but notice the damage at the water line of the hull, I sure hope they plan on fixing that! LOL

    You’ll be surprised. They will make the hole even bigger! Because behind it are the stabilizers of the DISNEY WISH, which they have only covered with a thin steel plate for reasons of precaution. When the FERU is in the shipyard in Papenburg, they will remove this cover again.

    Actually this is the engine room portion of the ship, stablizer wings are usually deployed from the FORWARD portion of a vessel, so it’s unlikely those are the stabilizers. The covers welded over the space appear to be temporary in nature, so they could be something for the sea water inlet for engine cooling or water for filtration. It’s definitely not for the stabilizers.

    My friend, I have to tell you that you don’t know where the MEYER WERFT shipyard installs the stabilizers. Take a look at a video of previous engine room unit conveyances on my YouTube channel Unimedien and you will see that MEYER WERFT shipyard is installing the stabilizers in these FERUs. It is new that they are now protecting them with steel plates during the conveyance. Here you can see an example from a previous conveyance:
    Back then the FERU were a little shorter, today they are 20 meters longer.
