Platform deck

Cold store plant
Long voyages required much food. Normally 17 tons of provisions were taken onboard to make up for the first couple of weeks. There were special rooms for potatoes and cheese. Perishables were kept in the cold store plant. The first room is the 5⁰C reefer room for e.g. vegetables, while the adjacent freezer for deep freeze had a temperature of -18⁰.

 

Central store
This was the Frigate's main storage room. On its 2 decks app. 40,000 different items were kept - all from pencils to return valves. The storage was controlled by the Frigate's supply officer and his assistants, who manually kept account of the stores, deliveries to the petty officers and re-ordering from the Naval stations.

 

Diesel room
Here we find the two single acting, turbocharged General Motors 16 cylinder two-stroke diesel engines, type 16-567D. Together they produced 4,800 Hp giving the Frigate a speed of up to15 knots (app. 28 km/h). Furthermore you will find a 350 kW Frichs diesel generator, a Junker high pressure compressor and a fresh water generator.

Diesel room.


Aft turbine room
Each of the Frigate's two turbine rooms contains a Pratt & Whitney gas turbine of each 22,000 Hp. When the Frigate was sold for scrap the gas turbines were handed over to US Coast Guard to be used in their Hamilton-class frigates. The gas turbines were used at speeds in excess of 15 knots, as they could boost the speed to more than 30 knots (app 55 km/h). They were coupled to each shaft via a large gear reducing their revolutions from 5,000 to 330. The oil consumption was 11 tons per hour from the Frigate's 440 tons tanks. In this room you will find, too, one of Peder Skram's 5 350 kW Frichs diesel generators, an air compressor and a centrifuge cleaning the oil of water and impurities before entering the turbines.

 

KaMeWa room
Swedish Karstads Mekaniska Werkstad (KaMeWa) was a frontrunner when developing a propeller with controlled-pitch blades, and the Frigate was the first major ship using the system. As the shafts of the Frigate are constantly rotating with 330 rpm - same number and same direction, one to the right and the other to the left - the speed is changed by changing the pitch of the propeller blades. In that way the Frigate quickly could change its speed or go from ahead to reverse. Control handles are found on the bridge and in the control room. The indication of the handles is transmitted hydraulically to the propeller.
