Episode 3: Command and Control

Building the ships’ eight-story accommodation block and bridge is a surprisingly complex challenge. Unlike traditional container ships (where the bridge is in the rear of the vessel), the bridge on the Triple-E will be nearer the front of the ship. This will allow containers to be stacked higher behind it and still give the captain a clear view ahead. Engineers must also position the funnels towards the back of the ship - a safer distance from the bridge and accommodation tower. We follow engineers test this design, by running smoke tests in one of the world’s largest wind tunnels. How will it affect the behaviour of exhaust from the funnels and, could it increase the chance of smoke entering the engine rooms, or even the crew’s quarters?
