Reviews the world trends since 1966 in the application of gas turbines on both naval and merchant ships. States that the total horsepower increased from 1.9 to 5.8 million in a four-year period, with some 5.5 million horsepower in propulsion. Indicates a definite growth in commercial use from 100,000 to 390,000 hp. Attributes the significant gain in total power due primarily to the availability of proven engines, that are competitive with other prime movers, in the 20,000 hp and above size. Predicts significant increase in use of the marine gas turbine for naval as well as merchant ships when the overall ship, its utilization and supporting shore facilities are considered jointly.
