This system will combine the Rolls-Royce MT30 gas turbine with four of Tognum’s MTU high-speed diesel generator sets.Don Roussinos, Rolls-Royce, President – Naval, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Tognum on the development of an advanced propulsion system for a fleet of ships that will be central to the Royal Navy’s capability for decades to come.“The Type 26 will combine a range of marine technologies, and it is the sophisticated integration of this equipment that will ensure these ships will be highly flexible and efficient, whatever the mission.”The MT30 is derived from Rolls-Royce aero engine technology and builds on over 45 million hours of operating experience. Producing 36 to 40 megawatts, it is the world’s most powerful marine gas turbine and has the highest power density – a key factor in naval propulsion where delivering a high power output in a compact space is essential.Earlier this year, Rolls-Royce installed two MT30s in the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. The MT30 is also in service with the US Navy and has been selected for the Republic of Korea Navy’s latest frigate programme.[mappress]Press Release, September 11, 2013; Image: BAE Systems Back to overview,Home naval-today Rolls-Royce to Design Gas Turbine for UK Navy’s Warship View post tag: Defense View post tag: design View post tag: Warship September 11, 2013 View post tag: UK View post tag: Naval View post tag: Rolls-Royce View post tag: turbine View post tag: Defence View post tag: Gas View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea got their Premier League campaign on track after lethal finishing coupled with a slice of good fortune gave them a 3-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday.New signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz made their debuts up front after the German internationals joined Frank Lampard’s side from the Bundesliga during the close season as Chelsea prevailed thanks to goals from somewhat unlikely sources. England’s Under-21 right back Reece James stole the show with a spectacular strike into the top corner from 25 metres which gave Chelsea a 2-1 lead before a deflected Kurt Zouma shot sealed the points.Brighton had taken the game to Chelsea in the first half but fell behind after a defensive blunder in the 23rd minute when goalkeeper Mat Ryan fouled Werner in the area and Jorginho cooly converted the penalty.Leandro Trossard equalised in the 54th with a strike from 20 metres which bounced in front of keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, but James restored Chelsea’s lead two minutes later with a strike any of their forwards would have been proud of.Brighton’s Lewis Dunk missed a sitter soon after and the home side were punished in the 66th as Webster turned a tame Zouma effort past the stranded Ryan after James swung in an inviting corner.Tags: ChelseaKai HavertzKurt ZoumaPremier LeagueTimo Wernerlast_img read more
