Steam Turbine Propulsion
Steam Turbine Propulsion

Learn about the use of steam turbines in the context of marine propulsion and their current status in the marine industry. slide 1 of 2 Marine steam turbine engines have largely been replaced by the more economical marine two stroke diesel engine, mainly for commercial reasons as the diesel engine is much more economical.

Wind Propulsion
Wind Propulsion

Wind assisted propulsion is the practice of decreasing the fuel consumption of a merchant vessel through the use of sails or some other wind capture device. Sails used to be the primary means of propelling ships, but with the advent of the steam engine and the diesel engine, sails came to be used for recreational sailing only.
