The tower contains two steam engines, each of 35-horse power, for driving the two Meritens dynamos that supply the electric current for the gigantio lamp at the Bummit of the lighthouse. The lamp, which is constructed on Le Baron's principle, sheds a constant light of 2,000,000 candle power, and is so arranged that the keeper can watch and control its working from his room on the ground floor by means of a system of prisms and mirrors, and needs only to ascend to the lantern in the event of damage or to renew the carbons. Besides the lantern, the tower contains air pumps which actuate two powerful fog-signals.
