LCS Propulsion Contract to Rolls-Royce

Monday, August 14, 2006
Rolls-Royce has won an order for the largest naval gas turbines in the world to power a next generation U.S. Navy warship. Two Rolls-Royce MT30 gas turbines will power the second Lockheed Martin-designed Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). Another set of the same turbines has already been ordered and installed in Lockheed Martin’s first LCS, Freedom (LCS 1). The gas turbines for the second Lockheed Martin-designed LCS will be delivered to the Bollinger shipyard in Lockport, La., in early 2007. Rolls-Royce is also supplying four Kamewa waterjets to the ship. These same waterjets have also been supplied to Freedom, and the company is also providing bearings and shafting to both ships.
