GAS TURBINE GENERATOR & WASTE HEAT BOILER INSTALLED ON S/S PIONEER MOOR, EVALUATION AND CRITIQUE

The feasibility and usefulness of constructing and installing a gas turbine-driven generator and waste heat boiler combination unit for merchant ships are reported. Figures are presented to show performance curves, performance tabulation, and a pictorial representation of the generator and boiler unit. It is concluded that the unit combination is currently acceptable for installation in emergency service capacity, and could be used as a ships service set once reliability is assured. After approval for ships service is otained, other uses could be considered. Recommendations are offered for improvement of the machine, improvement of installation, and possible additional services. Appendices are included on the contract history, chronology, procedure of evaluation, detailed questions and answers, and a typical log sheet.
