Ship's Electric Drive Motor

This one follows up on the two previous postings about a ship's prime movers. All that power generated is used, in part, by a drive motor. I know a massive grey box is not exactly the sexiest image, but underneath all that, is an 11,000 kW motor. Closest to the image, is the reduction gear and, out of sight, down to the left and bottom, is the shaft. The orientation in this photo is that we are looking forward, towards the bow and, the stern is to the left and over your shoulder.
