SECOND GENERATION HIGH POWER MARINE GAS TURBINE

The LM2500 marine gas turbine derived from the General Electric TF-39/CF6 turbofan engine family incorporates many engineering advances which are not available in the first generation marine gas turbines such as a high pressure ratio compressor, high temperature gas generator turbine, gas generator turbine cooling system, and high performance power turbine. Because of its lower air flow, smaller size, and integrated components and systems, the LM2500 marine gas turbine offers the Ship Designer and Naval Architect excellent installation characteristics and improved reliability and maintenance characteristics.
