The Titanic had two reciprocating engines, one each on port and starboard, and a centre turbine engine.

Each reciprocating engine developed 30,000 shaft horsepower (shp), and the turbine developed 16,000 shp. This gave the Titanic a total power of 76,000 shp.

The Titanic had a designed speed of 21 knots with a flank, or emergency speed, of 23.5 knots.
