EVENDALE, OHIO: GE Aerospace’s Marine Engines & Systems, a world-leading manufacturer of aeroderivative marine propulsion systems for the US Navy and 38 other navies around the world, will be exhibiting at Surface Navy Association’s 36th National Symposium in Crystal City, VA on January 8-10, 2024 at Booth 220A.
Aligned with this year’s symposium theme, “The Fight, The Force, The Future,” the Marine Engines & Systems group will showcase the LM2500 family of marine gas turbine engines in a variety of propulsion system arrangements, including hybrid electric drive (HED) and integrated full electric propulsion (IFEP). These proven propulsion solutions are ready to provide the power required for the Navy’s next-generation of ships.
“We are deeply committed to continuing GE Aerospace’s history of ingenuity and innate curiosity to meet the evolving needs of global naval fleets,” said Mark Musheno, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Marine Engines & Systems, GE Aerospace.
The Marine Engines & Systems team will be joined at the show by the marine team at GE Power, which will soon become part of a public company positioned to lead the energy transition, called GE Vernova.
In 2024, GE will officially be separated into three industry-leading, global public companies focused on the important growth sectors of aviation, healthcare, and energy. GE will be a standalone company called GE Aerospace, including the marine gas turbine engines portfolio.
“We will continue to invest and be laser-focused on the LM2500 product, continuing the legacy of innovation and unwavering commitment to safety, quality, and trust,” added Musheno.
GE Aerospace’s marine propulsion solutions have demonstrated naval experience with unmatched reliability:
- Flexibility to upgrade for more power, with six gas turbines ranging from 4.5 to 52.7MW.
- Nine licensed maintenance, repair, and overhaul facilities worldwide to ensure operability and support at home or abroad.
- Design that allows for in-situ maintenance, maximizing the availability and time on station.
- A lightweight composite enclosure that greatly benefits the sailors with its lighter walls, improved acoustics, decreased wall temperature, and easier access.
