The purpose of this paper is to investigate the possibilities of implementing a rotating gasifier to convert aero-derived gas turbines into multifuel ship propulsion units, thereby combining the advantages of lightweight and compact gas turbines with the multifuel characteristics of a rotating gasifier. Problems (and possible solutions) to be discussed are: (i) aerodynamic interaction between gas turbine and gasifier; (ii) attaining maximum energy productivity together with ease of control; (iii) corrosion and/or erosion of gas turbine components.
