Applications of gas turbine-generator sets in marine service are discussed with emphasis on service requirements and limitations of equipment. Characteristics of the gas turbine-generator set are compared to alternative equipment. Examples of installations which are in service are cited to illustrate the method in which gas turbine-generator sets are utilized to best advantage in marine applications. A summary of experience and suggestions for future improvements of such applications is presented.
