With construction nearly complete, the team behind the world’s biggest ship, prepare for the last stage of construction – spraying the exterior of her 400 metre hull with approximately ten thousand litres of paint.  Only when her hull has been sprayed from head to toe, will she be ready to leave dock for the last time. But before taking to the open seas, her team of engineers and designers must first test every piece of equipment on board. Inside the Triple E’s engine room, we follow her machine team, as they prepare to switch on the ship’s colossal 40,000 horsepower engines for the very first time. But as the test gets underway, one of the engines begins to dangerously overheat. Can the engineers fix the faulty power plant in time?
