The standard displacement of the Quartz ice cream barge is 5,678 tons and can carry 3,000 tons. It has no power on its own and needs to be dragged by a tugboat
For example, at the time, large US warships were equipped with machines for making ice cream. There are no such conditions on small ships such as destroyers and submarines, but they also have a way to eat ice cream. After the destroyer or submarine rescues the pilot from the carrier, it can benefit from the aircraft carrier. It is said that one pilot can change 20 liters of ice cream, and if it is a ace pilot, it can change more.
However, the space on the warships is limited, and even if you can make ice cream, there will be a shortage of supply. To this end, the US Navy has built an ice cream barge called Quartz, which has four diesel generators for refrigeration and can produce 6,000 liters of ice cream in an hour. Therefore, an ice cream barge can guarantee that tens of thousands of people have ice cream to eat.
