The first engine of a new family of high performance, rugged radial turbines is presented.

The new single shaft 1500 kW site rated KG3 is built upon extensive experience from the field proven KG2 of the same nominal power.

The KG3 is being developed both as a simple cycle and recuperated engine providing specific fuel consumptions in the range of 0.29 to 0.19 kg/kW·hr (0.47 to 0.32 lbs/hp·hr).

The new Kongsberg engine makes use of a high specific speed high pressure ratio centrifugal compressor combined with a very high tip speed uncooled radial turbine to obtain optimized aerodynamic matching.

Several novel design features are described.
