At her new home in the Great Harbour, the recently delivered water barge SD WATERPRESS was seen berthed alongside the tug SD IMPETUS. Both SD WATERPRESS and SD OILMAN, delivered at the end of 2009, need to be towed around as required, neither being fitted with propulsion machinery. Both are, however, fitted with auxiliary engines to run the various pumping equipment that they are fitted with and like SD OILMAN, SD WATERPRESS is also fitted with a small wind turbine generator set, clearly visible in this view, to provide standby power.
