ETF40B (Vericor)

Vericor's ETF40B marine gas turbine is an aero-derivative engine that is mainly used in navy hovercraft applications to drive propulsion and lift fans. This engine replaces the very successful TF40B engine with an increase of about 20 percent in power output. The ETF40B engine is used by many navies including the US Navy, the Republic of Korea Navy and the Navy of the Japanese Self Defense Forces.

MTU's affiliate Vericor Power Systems is headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia, U.S.. The company is an original equipment manufacturer for marine and industrial gas turbines and offers complete engines as well as marine propulsion systems, including control units, accessories and inlet and exhaust systems. With more than 50 years of heritage originating with the Lycoming Engine Company, the rugged TF series gas turbines have accumulated hundreds of thousands of hours in military and commercial service around the world.
