GE to Supply FREMM Vessel

Wednesday, December 12, 2007
GE Marine will supply Avio, Torino, Italy, with a third GE LM2500+G4 aeroderivative gas turbine for the European Multi-Mission Frigates (FREMM) program. The engine will be the basis for the COmbined Diesel And Gas turbine (CODAG) propulsion module that will power the French Navy’s second FREMM ship.

The French and Italian Navies are jointly developing the FREMM program, and combined, the navies are slated to build a total of 27 next-generation frigates. GE has already contracted with Avio to supply two LM2500+G4 gas turbines for the initial two FREMM vessels. Avio is a GE Marine Systems Supplier, as well as the prime contractor for the FREMM gas turbine system.

The third FREMM LM2500+G4 gas turbine will be manufactured at GE’s Evendale, Ohio facility, and will be delivered to Avio in 2009.
