Art Deco - HMS Veronica

We remember your service.

The Navy's special relationship with the people of Napier is honoured each year with the Thank God for the Navy Breakfast and the Veronica Bell ceremony during the annual Art Deco festival. During the 1931 Napier earthquake the Navy came to the aid of Napier, and it has never been forgotten.

The Generators

Korea. AOTEAROA has 4 x MTU 20V4000M53B diesel generators that will provide electrical power to the ship’s hotel services, Replenishment at Sea (RAS) rigs, cargo management system, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), and winterisation systems for the Antarctic. 

They will also supply two electric propulsion motors that supplement the propulsion diesels at higher speeds, or can be used independently to propel the ship at low speeds.  The combined output of the four MTU generators is 10.4MW, so could supply enough power to run up to 12,000 average New Zealand households!
