We know the power (6x10^4 Watts), and that power equals work over time. If you solve for the work, you get 1.2x10^5 Joules. Work is a form of energy, and if you set the initial kenetic energy (0 joules) plus the work done by the engine equal to the final kenetic energy you can solve for the final velocity.
