The vessel has a design speed of 12 knots but achieved 13.5 knots during sea trials. The positive hull design is driven through the water by a pair of IMO2 and EPA2 compliant Cummins QSK60M engines with modular common rail fuel systems. Each 2200 HP engine turns up to 1800 RPM into Twin Disc MGX5600 gears with 5:04:1 reduction. The shafts turn four-blade fixed pitch propellers with 1900 m/m diameters.
