GE Marine reports that it will provide MTU Friedrichshafen, Friedrichshafen, Germany, with one LM2500 gas turbine for the German Navy’s fourth Baden-Württemberg-class (F125) frigate.


For each new F125 frigate, MTU will provide the German Navy with one LM2500 gas turbine, two electric motors and four diesel generator-sets in combined diesel-electric and gas turbine propulsion arrangement.  The keel for the first F125 frigate was laid in November 2011 at the Blohm +Voss shipyard in Hamburg.  
 

GE LM2500s also power the German Navy’s Bremen- (F122), Brandenburg- (F123) and Sachsen-class (F124) frigates.


The LM2500 gas turbine will be manufactured at GE’s Evendale, Ohio, facility and will be delivered to MTU’s Friedrichshafen in February 2014 for placement into the propulsion module. The ship is expected to be launched in 2015, and commissioned by the German Navy in 2017.
