There is no Molda in Equasis SIN or MSI. Assuming Moldanger which is the only tanker starting with Molda, but we could be wrong.

In theory, ship should be able to discharge using 2 of 3 generators, so losing one should be possible. In fact, it usually is not since Class rules are hopelessly optimistic when it comes to sizing generators.
