“The Daegu class is an exciting program. It is the world’s first frigate to use a single MT30 in the compact package and our first application for MT30 outside the U.K. and U.S. markets. The MT30 gas turbine has been successfully installed in Ship 1 and is currently successfully supporting the commissioning of ROK Daegu’s propulsion system.”

The MT30 is derived from the Rolls-Royce Trent aero engine. Rolls-Royce describes it as “the world’s most powerful in-service marine gas turbine with the highest power density.”

The engine is in service in the U.S. Navy’s Freedom-class Littoral Combat Ships. It has also been chosen to power the British Royal Navy’s Type 26 Global Combat Ships.
