Rolls-Royce Technology for Submarines


A new generation of Rolls-Royce turbo-generators has been selected to provide power systems for the Royal Navy's latest class of submarines. Rolls-Royce has won a contract from BAE Systems to design, build and supply three sets of turbo-generators for the Royal Navy's new ASTUTE class of attack submarine. The machines provide the boats' electrical power for sensors, services and weapons systems. The new generators enhance the proven features of the current Rolls-Royce design which is already in service in the Royal Navy's VANGUARD class of submarines.

The changes improve machinery performance, reduce maintenance and lower overall costs throughout the entire life of the vessel. The first set of generators is due for delivery in early 2001 and project management, turbine design and overall systems integration, will be undertaken by the Integrated Propulsion Systems business of Rolls-Royce Marine Power. All three ASTUTE submarines will be built at BAE Systems site in Barrow-in-Furness. Powered by Rolls-Royce supplied pressured water reactor power plants, they will be fitted with a long-life core, designed by Rolls-Royce to last the planned life of the boat and eliminate costly reactor re-fuelling.
