I spent the last two days working under a rolls Royce marine trent turbine, this morning I went in to do a final cleanup and inspection and the first thing I did was smack my head on one of those very pretty stainless pipes . my head has been hurting all day.
I built the base and the enclosure for 6 of these units that were going to the military for uss independence class ships . they would not let me take pics so these are what I could get of the internet. The idea is to use the trent turbine to power a solid state electric motor which then powers everything else. They assemble a few of these each year, some are used as mobile power plants others I don't know what for. What I do know is that they are pretty cool and the turbines are very impressive to see.
I get to go in and do the final welding of the enclosure to the base, the basses and enclosures are built down south somewhere and the units are assembled here in the northeast.
