Third German Navy F125-Class Frigate Christened; Propelled by GE LM2500 Gas Turbine System
 
The German Navy’s third F125-class frigate Sachsen-Anhalt was recently christened during a ceremony held in Hamburg. The ship is powered by a GE LM2500 gas turbine-based system. The christening took place in March at thyssenKrupp Marine Systems shipyard. The F125-class frigate propulsion module consists of one LM2500 gas turbine, two electric motors and four diesel generator-sets in a combined diesel-electric and gas turbine (CODLAG) propulsion arrangement.

All four of the new F125-class frigates being built for the German Navy will use the same LM2500 CODLAG-configured propulsion system. The gas turbines are manufactured at GE’s Evendale, Ohio, facility. GE LM2500s also power the German Navy’s Bremen- (F122), Brandenburg- (F123) and Sachsen-class (F124) frigates.

The new F125-class frigates replace the German Navy's eight Bremen-class frigates. According to the thyssenKrupp announcement, Sachsen-Anhalt is scheduled to be handed over to the German defense procurement agency in early 2019. Sea trials will commence soon for the first F125-class frigate, Baden-Württemberg.

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, GE is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of marine products and propulsion systems including aeroderivative gas turbines ranging from 6,000 to 70,275 shaft horsepower/4.5 to 52 megawatts. For more information, visit www.ge.com/marine.
