HEAVY-DUTY MARINE GAS TURBINE PROJECT. TASK 2. TURBINE CLEANING. FINAL REPORT

This report describes the work performed within Task 2, Turbine Cleaning, of the Heavy Duty Gas Turbine Development Program, or MARAD Project. The MARAD Project is an integrated effort to develop the heavy-duty gas turbine as an alternate competitive form of marine power generation. The costs of this program are shared equally by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Maritime Administration and General Electric Company, Gas Turbine Products Division. Task efforts have established the optimum viable automatic turbine cleaning and washing system, together with the operational requirements to insure its proper applications.
