GAS TURBINE OPERATING EXPERIENCE

The 45m Tricat catamarans in service on the Hong Kong to Macao route are each powered by two Taurus TM 60M gas turbines, each rated for 5250kW under ISO conditions, but derated for Hong Kong conditions (35oC) to 4245kW including intake and exhaust losses. This article describes how the engines have performed after almost a year of operation.
