New Low Emission Micro Turbine for Marine Applications
RH Marine, Feadship, Seven Turbine Power and Boskalis have joined forces in a strong partnership to introduce a revolutionary micro turbine to the maritime industry. The Micro turbine has extreme low emissions, operates quietly without vibrations and requires very little maintenance. The compact, clean and comfortable solution consists of a DC65-D Marine turbine generator, a 65kW turbine-generator set that can run on a variety of fuels such as marine gas oil and delivers direct current to the grid, based on a Capstone C65 micro turbine.
