INSTALLATION OF 5000 HP MARINE GAS TURBINES IN A PATROL BOAT -- LATEST STEP IN NAVY AT-SEA GAS TURBINE TESTING

An historical review describes U. S. Navy experience introducing several marine gas turbines into fleet service. The type and amount of engine developmental testing and its effects on in-service reliability are discussed. Policy and goals for the development of a new 5000-hp (3730-kW) marine gas turbine are outlined. The latest results of developmental tests on this new turbine are covered. The modification of a patrol boat to be a platform for at-sea tests of this new engine is described. The plans for operating this boat are discussed.
