MT30 receives DNV certification
ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) certification test running, which will satisfy all United States Navy requirements, has also been started and will be completed in mid-2004. The MT30 has been selected to power the Integrated Power System (IPS) Engineering Development Model (EDM) for the US Navy's DD(X) multi-mission destroyer programme. This order marks the company's entry into the US Navy large gas turbine market. MT30 is also included in the baseline design for the two proposed Royal Navy aircraft carriers and is being actively considered for the Franco-Italian FREMM frigate programme.
The gas turbine has 80% commonality with the Trent 800 aero engine, which has won a market-leading 44% of the Boeing 777 program, achieving more than five million flying hours since entering service in 1996.
The MT30 is cost-effective and efficient compared to existing marine gas turbines operating over 25MW and is available for service in either mechanical or electrical generator set applications for both commercial and naval marine markets. Offering improved power density and reliability, it is ideal for frigates, destroyers and aircraft carriers requiring high-powered propulsion, while it is also ideal for cruise ships and fast ferries.
A single MT30 can replace two conventional boost turbines, saving space and reducing operating and ownership costs while giving propulsion system designers greater flexibility.
