There are 2 such engines across the street from my window-they run back-up
electrical power generators for a semiconductor fab plant...we have very poor
power reliability in this area and these engines run continually so that
these generators are able to come on-line within fractions of a second of a
power outage. My understanding is that large marine engines operate the same
way. Not wishing to add fuel to the (oil) fire...but in this case, Avi knows
of which he speaks!
