Shifting to integrated electric-drive propulsion can reduce a ship’s fuel use by 10% to 25%; some Navy ships are to use integrated electric drive. Fuel cell technology, if successfully developed, could reduce Navy ship fuel use substantially.

Alternative hydrocarbon fuels. The modern fleet includes the first battleships, the first nuclear-powered ships, and the first electric warships ─ and continues to evolve.

Marine propulsion is the mechanism or system used to generate thrust to move a ship or boat across water. While paddles and sails are still used on some smaller boats, most modern ships are propelled by mechanical systems consisting of an electric motor or engine turning a propeller, or less frequently, in pump-jets, an impeller.

The A1W plant was the first in which two reactors powered one ship propeller shaft through a single-geared turbine propulsion the Navy program evolved, new reactor cores and equipment replaced many of the original Navy trained naval personnel at the A1W plant and continued a test program to improve and further develop its Cited by: 5.

The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program includes the civilian and military personnel who design, build, operate, maintain, and manage the nuclear-powered ships and the many facilities that support the U.S. nuclear-powered naval Fleet. The Program has cradle-to-grave responsibility for all naval nuclear propulsion matters.

General strategies for reducing the Navy's dependence on oil for its ships include reducing energy use on Navy ships; shifting to alternative hydrocarbon fuels; shifting to more reliance on nuclear propulsion; and using sail and solar.

the propulsion system: heart of today's navy vessel The heart of today's Navy vessel, whether it is a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, corvette, minehunter or support craft, is the propulsion system. Many of these warships and naval auxiliaries demand high-performance, flexible and durable propulsion systems.
