The Landing Craft Tank (LCT) is a type of attack landing craft to vessel tanks on the waterfront. In general, LCT 415 Gross Tonnage (GT) ships are not ready to sail using emergency generators. According to Indonesia Classification Bureau or Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia (BKI) rules, only ships with more than 500 GT are required to have an emergency generator package. However, for the LCT 415 GT to gain higher level of safety, the ship is equipped with an emergency generator package installation. This generator is used as an electric power source used by the ship's compass in off condition. The purpose of this study is to learn the electrical power requirements on the LCT 415 GT to determine the required emergency generator package specifications and provide an overview of the generator's placement on the main deck. Emergency generator packages are arranged to improve ship safety, crew and cargo. In emergency condition, LCT 415 GT ships required a total power of 29,9408 kW. The basic package of emergency generator set selection is based on the total emergency power following BKI regulations as well as the generator safety engine package set when extreme weather conditions occurs.
