The ship is based on six Ecobox ships built for the same shipping company, but has as an extra provision a DP2 (Dynamic positioning) installation with a combined diesel-direct and diesel-electrical configuration with which the vessel can exactly be kept in position or on track .

The installation comprises a 690V main control panel, a 440V main and emergency control panel, an automated system consisting of a power management and an alarm system, three 1200kW bow thruster engines provided with Eekels frequency drives, three 690V shaft generators and panels for the bridge and engine room.
