Rolls-Royce is a leading supplier of mission critical marine power and propulsion systems, and our equipment is in use on more than 30,000 vessels with 4,000 customers across the offshore, merchant and naval sectors.
We supply sophisticated equipment to 70 navies, and this week at the Euronaval show in Paris, Rolls-Royce is showcasing marine capabilities including the new MT7 gas turbine, which has been selected to power the US Navy's Ship to Shore Connector – a new generation of hovercraft. The MT7 has been derived from the highly successful AE1107 aero engine which has achieved over 45 million operating hours and powers the US Marine Corps' V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft.
Other announcements at Euronaval include the development of a new, highly efficient mini water jet to propel unmanned surface craft for the US Navy. The new water jet will be the smallest Rolls-Royce design to date and will be used in the growing market of unmanned marine craft. Rolls-Royce also announced broadened capability in ship design with the establishment of a new team dedicated to the development of naval ship designs.
