The report is a summary of five major studies that deal with the design of economical integrated power plants for the propulsion of future American merchant ships. Brief descriptions are given of two steam plants, two gas-turbine plants, and one diesel plant, and of their respective auxiliary systems. Economic factors pertaining to these power plants are compared on a common basis with respect to estimated initial costs and operating costs. The results indicate that a proposed diesel plant has an economic advantage over the other proposed systems.
