Redundancy in main engine design in large passenger ferries

Patrick Dunford made this Official Information request to Maritime New Zealand

The request was successful.

From: Patrick Dunford

Dear Maritime New Zealand,

What is the degree of redundancy required when operating a large passenger ferry (e.g. Interislander or Bluebridge) on the Cook Strait?

For example, is it appropriate for all of the main engines to be dependent on a single cooling system or should redundancy be designed in the cooling systems?

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Dunford
