The latest gas turbine development being undertaken by the Royal Navy is the ACL technology demonstrator programme. The aim of the project is to design and demonstrate a GTA of around 2MW that will have reduced whole life costs when compared to a conventional diesel generator. The project is being managed for the MoD by the Marine Propulsion Systems IPT and being procured through the prime contractor - Turbomeca. The prime contract was awarded in December 2000 and is scheduled to run for five years. This paper describes the main aims and objectives of the project. The paper also gives a detailed overview of the GTA system, describes the key technologies and discusses the outline development programme.
