The Maritime Administration, in its pursuit of improved economics and advanced technology, initiated a study which would evaluate new marine powerplants. It became quite apparent for several sound technical reasons that the closed cycle gas turbine engine afforded an excellent opportunity for achievement of MARAD's goal. This paper will address the new technology engine as applied to maritime ships illustrating the advantages to ship owners and operators. Efficiency, multi-fuel capability, installation flexibility, reduction in ships manning, as well as the overall reduced operating cost will be highlighted in this paper.
