Tanker Dione was the only D-tanker with a Stork engine, all the others had a B&W engine.

Thanks to the comment may by Gerard Vingerhoed i do remember something else about Dione. This ship is known to me for suffering many fires in the main-engine exhaust system. On a tanker this gives some cause to alarm. On Dione this was dealed with effectivly and in a routine manner. So i do recall.
I knew of this before i joined her. Ships in the Dutch Shell fleet did have radio contact within a daily schedule. Once every few weeks Dione reported on figthing yet another fire. Some blamed the engine builder.
