With everything from great hull lines with the FKAB F-Bow to a set-up of equipment onboard, where a propeller duct is chosen to lower the requested power for Ice class 1A, where auxillary engines are used to boost when extra power might be needed, the possibility to use the main engine as an auxillary engine when dischgarging, a UPS battery pack for preventing black outs that makes it possible to run all necessary electrical equipment for an hour if there would be a power failure and also equipped for performing full cargo discharge with electricity from shore.
