Description: The LM2500 was designed to be a high efficiency, ease to repair and maintain and corrosion-resistant marine gas turbine. It is suitable for both mechanical drive and power generation applications.

The LM2500 gas turbine delivers 25 MW and has been deployed in a wide range of military ships powering frigates, cruisers, carriers, boats, etc. In November 2004, LM2500 was selected to power three Republic of Korea (RoK) KDX-III destroyers. Each destroyer will receive four gas turbines. To date, the Republic of Korea Navy has ordered more than 70 LM2500 gas turbines from General Electric to power corvettes, destroyers and frigates.
