A marine gas turbine, capable of obtaining rapid propeller thrust reversals for such maneuvers as docking or crash reversal operation, without the aid of controllable pitch propellers or motor-generator units, was successfully test demonstrated using full-scale hardware. This paper describes the design pictorially during the assembly stages in addition to full load performance and control transient data. The data demonstrates that the turbine can be controlled in either direction within an infinite range of speeds from full ahead to full astern. Test results are compared with previous analytical predictions verifying the full power capability of this turbine design for marine applications or other industrial uses.
