This paper describes the first completely gas-turbine powered stations used for supplying primary power for military installations. The stations, with one exception, are equipped with waste-heat boilers which supply steam for use in all heating including barracks. Gas turbines were specified as the most economical means of satisfying the electric power and central heating requirements. The stations are completely self-contained with no connection to any commercial power. The gas turbines, with one exception, use natural gas as the primary fuel and No. 2 diesel fuel as standby fuel. Changeover to liquid fuel is automatic. Change back to gas is manual.
