The next to
last stop on the virtual tour through REQUIN is the maneuvering
room. At the forward end of the compartment are the massive levers
which distributed the current created by the main diesels, generators,
and batteries. Each bank of levers could be cross connected with
the other so that if one bank went down due to malfunction, the
other could be connected, thus directing the electrical current.
Located on either side, as seen in this photograph, are the voltage
regulator panels, air conditioning switchboards, and pump controls.
