At the 1962 ASME meeting in Houston, Allison submitted a paper describing the possibilities of industrializing the T56 aircraft engine. Since that time, Allison has modified the engine for gas burning and is operating one as a prime mover for a 2000-kw generator at the Indianapolis Plant. In addition, two additional units are to be installed in the gas-transmisson field driving centrifugal gas compressors. This paper gives a description of the units and a status report on the installation and operation. Photographs of the installation and performance data, as necessary to complete the report, are included.
