Issue 71

Rolls-Royce has secured a contract to supply diesel generators, propellers and shaft lines for the US Navy’s new fleet replenishment oiler ships, the John Lewis Class. Planned to total 17 ships, the new John Lewis class (previously known as TAO – X) will significantly increase the US Navy’s capability to transfer fuel to its surface ships, in operations around the globe.

For each ship, Rolls-Royce will supply two highly efficient Kamewa 150A Controllable Pitch Propellers (CPP), whilst two Bergen B32:40xL8A generator sets will provide power to satisfy on board energy requirements.
