SNAME Philadelphia Section

Discusses Marine Applications

For Heavy Duty Gas Turbines

Principals shown above at the Philadelphia Section meet- ing, left to right: (seated) S.M. Kaplan, F.X. Critelli, A.

Caruvana, authors; J.M. Bollinger, coordinator; (stand- ing) H.T. McVey, Section vice chairman; T.J. Kavanagh, chairman; W.6. Neal Jr. and A.C. Brown, executive committee.

The subject of the February meeting of the

Francis X. Critelli, U.S. Department of

Commerce Maritime Administration, Saul M.

Kaplan, and Anthony Caruvana, General Elec- tric Company Gas Turbine Products Division, presented their paper titled "Heavy^Duty Gas

Turbine Development Project."

The paper presents a general overview of the joint General Electric Company and Mari- time Administration project to marinize the industrial regenerative gas turbine as a more economically and technically competitive form of propulsion power generation for ships of the U.S. merchant marine. The overview in- cludes the logic for the initiation of specific development efforts, present status of hard- ware-related developments, and future poten- tial for marine applications.

Dock Co., coordinated the meeting for the local Section.

Discussers included G.C. Swensson, Sun

Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co.; R.B. McFadden,
