The Lampson tractors have to be just about the noisiest machines I've ever heard - if I remember correctly their top speed was about 2mph, and they'd no brakes as they found our at Nigg going down the slope into the dock.

I remember when they were testing the Lampson at Nigg in the West yard, it was lifting 2 x 450te piles with a couple of 50te concrete blocks on top making 1000te. We were monitoring the jib when one of the 50 te blocks fell off, the jib didn't move!

I'm not surprised you found them loud.

Each transporter was powered by 2 V16 Detroit high speed Two Stroke engines, one for each track.

On the winch decks, each had 2 V16 Detroits (Niggs one) and 5 V16 Detroits on the 2 McDermott ones.

Each engine only had basic baffles to maintain back pressure, and very little silencing.
