Cool video. Although that sound is maddening.

Some of the sea-going adventure stories written by Wilbur Smith detail the hazards of only having one engine on a supertanker.  He makes a very good argument for two or three or even four engines for safety's sake.  A lot of tankers have busted up on the rocks when they lost the main engine somehow.
