Tugboat startup

The engines in a tugboat are started at the beginning of the day. Each Diesel engine is a bit over 2600 hp. First the generator is started, after that the 2 main engines. The alarm going off at the end is because of low air pressure due to the startup (engines use compressed air to start). Each engine has a cylinder capacity of 128 liters, and uses 500 liters of diesel fuel per hour at full power.
