Leonardo DRS has extended its LM2500 Gas Turbine packaging supply agreement with GE’s Marine Solutions, the company announced on 16 January.

The agreement has been extended through the end of 2024, with an option to extend through 2029. It includes the manufacture of GE-designed LM2500 packages for the US Navy and selected international platforms.

Leonardo DRS provides the baseplate, enclosure and a fully instrumented, wired and piped package for turbine start and fire protection systems for the three LM2500 engine sizes: the LM2500, LM2500+ and LM2500+G4.

Leonardo DRS ships the US Navy packages to GE in Evandale, Ohio, where the gas turbine is inserted and the package is subjected to full-load production qualification testing.
