MAINTENANCE OF MARINE GAS TURBINE ENGINES
Marine gas turbines have been in the U. S. Navy since 1951. At present there are approximately 386 engines including both main propulsion and electric power generation in all types of craft. Maintenance of those engines is performed under a three-level concept, those being organizational, intermediate, and overhaul. ( Depot. ) Lack of a large-scale commitment of gas turbines to the Fleet until mid-year 1969, prevented the establishment of a comprehensive maintenance program. For that reason, manufacturers recommendations rather than firm operating experience, are initially dictating the level of maintenance to be performed at specified intervals.
