Marinization of an aero gas turbine, in particular making it suitable for ship propulsion, involves the redesign of the jet engine to make it suitable for providing rotative power in a corrosive environment at sea level, while burning Diesel instead of kerosene. Stringent noise and shock requirements must be met. Air and exhaust gas has to be ducted to and from the engine over a considerable distance and the controls and output transmission have to be integrated in the ship's system. The typical problems involved and development required when making an aero gas turbine suitable for ship propulsion application are described based on recent extensive development experience.
