Why choose the aircraft type gas turbine for ship propulsion? Initial cost, weight, space, floor area, engine room height, fuel cost, and other operating costs are the factors determining the selection of the propulsion plant. A comparison of these factors with regards to containerships and tankers is evaluated. It is evident from the results that total economics favors the aircraft type gas turbine power-plant.
