In 2004, Rolls-Royce Naval Marine, Inc. (RRNMI, Walpole, MA, USA, now Rolls-Royce Marine North America, RRMNA) reached an agreement with Samsung Techwin Co. Ltd. (Seoul and Changwon, Korea) for the transfer of the assembly and installation of a marine electrical power system. This agreement culminated in the installation and use of Rolls-Royce Ship Service Gas Turbine Generators (SSGTGs) in the Republic of Korea Navy (RoKN) KDX-III Destroyers. In order to deliver success for this program, both companies had to overcome numerous technical and non-technical challenges.

Among these challenges were:

- Development of a kitting structure supplemented with tailored assembly drawings and instructions that could duplicate an established production process

- Agreement on the amount of Korean labor and materials to be utilized, referred to as “in-country” content

- Development of appropriate and necessary training for the assembly and testing of AG9140RF SSGTGs

- Determination of a correlation factor which equalizes the variables between RRMNA’s engine test cell and Samsung Techwin’s engine test cell

- Application of DAPA Quality Assurance (QA) requirements upon a system designed in accordance with US Navy QA requirements

- Ensuring compliance with Export Control guidelines, Export License requirements, and Manufacturing License Agreements

- Obtaining US Government approval for sale and transfer of technology and hardware to the Republic of Korea (RoK)
