The Twin TF Marine Gas Turbine Propulsion Package: The Solution for High PerformanceIn three different types of vessels, a unique propulsion solution is used to maximum effectiveness.More About Vericor's TF50B
Provide 10,000 hp of ship propulsion power in a small machinery space while maintaining lightest possible weight.
A twin marine gas turbine package employing direct mount and full support by the reduction gear.
