A German maritime website reports the Disney Treasure’s floating engine room unit, or FERU for short, has been completed at Neptune Weft in Rostock, Germany ahead of its conveyance to Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg. The January 16th article from THB states the FERU which is about 140 meters long by 39 meters wide was under construction for the better part of 6-months.

The FERU is equipped with five main engines of type 12V 51/60DF as well as the two LNG tanks. The block was removed from the Neptune Werft hall and sits on a floating dock in front of the hall. The floating dock will be flooded in the next few days and the section will thus be launched. Eventually, the floating dock with the Disney Treasure FERU will be transferred from Rostock via the North-Baltic Sea Canal and the Ems upwards to Papenburg with tugboat assistance.
