The conceptualisation of the large high speed ferries that are now appearing on the drawing boards has resulted in renewed interest in the application of large gas turbines as the propulsion units. This paper shall describe the FT8 gas turbine which offers the prospective designer or owner a 25 MW power module in a compact, high power to weight, high power to volume package.
