GE Marine Turbine to Power Turkish Navy Corvette

Wednesday, November 14, 2007
GE Marine will supply MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH, Friedrichshafen, Germany, with one LM2500 gas turbine. MTU will incorporate the LM2500 into a COmbined Diesel And Gas turbine (CODAG) configuration to power the Turkish Navy’s new MILGEM multi-purpose corvette.

The new MILGEM corvette will have an overall length of 99 meters with a displacement of 2,000 tons. The corvette’s CODAG system will feature one LM2500 gas turbine and two MTU diesel engines for total propulsion power of 30,000 kilowatts. Maximum ship speed will be 29 knots. The gas turbine will be manufactured at GE’s Evendale, Ohio facility, and will be delivered to MTU Friedrichshafen in late 2007 for integration into the CODAG propulsion system. Construction of the first MILGEM class corvette is currently in progress at the Turkish Naval Forces Istanbul Naval Shipyard; operation is scheduled in 2011.
