GE Marine will supply Navantia, A Coruña, Spain, with two LM2500 gas turbines
that will power the Spanish Navy’s next-generation F105 frigate, to be named Roger de Lauria. Navantia is building the frigate at its Ferrol shipyard.
The LM2500 gas turbines will be applied in a COmbined Diesel Or Gas turbine (CODOG) configuration, with two diesel engines onboard the Roger de Lauria frigate.
The 479-ft. Roger de Lauria will have a maximum speed of 28.5 knots. The LM2500 gas turbines for the frigate will be manufactured at GE Marine’s Evendale, Ohio facility. Delivery of the gas turbines is slated for the summer of 2008; the ship will be commissioned in late December 2012.
