MARINE GAS TURBINES IN THE ROYAL NAVY 1978-1979
The gas turbine is rapidly becoming the dominant means of propulsion in surface ships of the Royal Navy, as more ships of existing classes are built and as new gas turbine ships come into service. The paper describes recent operating experience, and the introduction of the uprated RM1 C Tyne engine to service. The principles of upkeep, engine health monitoring, and life extension being followed by the Royal Navy are discussed. The paper includes a review of the progress of the development program for the SM1 A Marine Spey engine for ships of the Royal Navy in the 1980s.
