the HPs is alot but thats not what that counts in such an engine coz its not ment to go fast. what that counts are the low RPMs. that engine can sustain very low RPMs. thus being able to propel a fully loaded ship even through the hell waves

true, when it comes to hauling, Torque and not horsepower is what matters. More torque means better hauling. since we get torque by hp * (5252/rpm), therefore lower RPM = more torque. for a ship you might find the engine produces 100k Hp but at say 100 RPM which will give more torque to haul all those containers against the force of waves in the ocean.

You're on the right track.
This one is probably about 5 million foot pounds at 100 rpm
