GE Issued Updated ABS Certification for LM2500

Posted on March 6, 2006

GE - Marine announced that it has been issued updated certification from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) for its LM2500 aeroderivative marine gas turbine. The amended certification reflects compliance to “2004 Naval Vessel Rules 2-3-1,” qualifying the LM2500 gas turbine to be applied in the propulsion system for the United States Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).

“The updated ABS certification – coupled with the LM2500’s compliance with existing ABS rules – was the last step necessary to qualify the LM2500 gas turbine for use in General Dynamics’ LCS propulsion system,” said Karl Matson, general manager, GE – Marine, Evendale, Ohio. “This is yet another significant milestone in the evolution of the LM2500 that enables this popular gas turbine to be applied in one of the most state-of-the-art military combatant applications in the world today."
