Marine Gas Turbine MT30
World's most powerful in-service marine gas turbine
The MT30 integrates world leading marine gas turbine technology to give operators efficiency and reliability in a compact package with a market-leading power-to-weight ratio.
Designed with approximately 50 per cent fewer parts than other aero-derived gas turbines in its class, to minimise maintenance costs, the MT30 has a twin-spool, high-pressure ratio gas generator with free power turbine. It maintains operating efficiency down to 25MW and can be configured in either mechanical, electrical or hybrid drive configurations. Proven at sea, MT30 entered service in 2008 powering the US Navy's first of class Littoral Combat Ship, USS Freedom.
Excellent performance retention.
Member of the aero Trent engine family.
Minimal number of off-package modules allows easy integration into machinery rooms.
Over 40% thermal efficiency.
Modular design for simplified engine maintenance.
