The GE38 delivers better power and fuel economy in any environment than outdated engines. That’s why Sikorsky and the U.S. Navy chose to invest in it for the CH-53K – the world’s most powerful maritime helicopter.
Now the time has come to select an engine for the next generation of SSC applications, and the GE38 is the right choice again.
By utilizing virtually the same engine on multiple applications, the U.S. Navy will have the advantage of tooling and part commonality as well as lower logistics costs.
Plus, the GE38 is well suited for compact, lightweight, efficient, 4 MW turbine generator sets for ship service power on the DDG51 and future surface combatants.
As you can see, the GE38 engine is a driving force behind the U.S. Navy’s past, present and future.
With over 50% more power and up to 18% better fuel consumption than its predecessors, the GE38 propulsion system already meets future emissions requirements. Now you can push your fuel limits without pulling a single punch. It’s just one more way GE is driving the future of marine technology.
