舶用ガスタービンの将来 Future of marine Gas Turbine
Marine gas turbines are prevailing on high speed vessel market lately based on its lightweight, compact and noiseless. However for real prevailing with diesel, fuel and efficiency are big obstacles. In case of fuel, environmental problem promote not to use the residual fuel. And it was verified that it was easy to get the distillate for gas turbine in Japan by TSL test. On the other hand the combined cycle is verified to be the best selection and much higher efficiency than diesel.
