Friday, May 19, 2000
GE Marine Engines is set to supply Motoren- und Turbinen-Union (MTU), Friedrichshafen, Germany with a pair of GE LM2500+ aeroderivative gas turbines. The units will be utilized to power the Corsaire 14000-class monohull fast ferry being constructed for Maritime Company of Lesvos (NEL), Piraeus, Greece.

France-based Alstom Leroux Naval Shipyard is building this innovative new vessel class of fast ferry for NEL. The yard also constructed the Corsaire 13000, which is scheduled to enter service this June for Societe Nationale Maritime Corse Mediterranee (SNCM).

LM2500+ gas turbines will be used in a Combined Diesel And Gas turbine (CODAG) configuration with two diesel engines. With a total propulsion of 66 megawatts, the 460 ft. (140 m) fast ferry will be designed to transport 1,800 passengers with a cruising speed of 42 knots on its route from Piraeus to the island of Lesvos.
