With a delivery of 9,000 kW at 59 deg.F./30 in. Hg. and an overall efficiency of 24.5 per cent at full load, a new gas turbine power plant has been developed by Svenska Turbinfabriks AB. Ljungström, of Finspång, Sweden. The three‐shaft design incorporates two axial‐flow compressors in series, two turbines each driving one of these compressors, and a power turbine directly driving the alternator. All components have been placed in a straight line with the combustor located between the high pressure compressor and the high pressure turbine and with the low‐pressure rotor arranged coaxially with the high pressure rotor.
