DRDO LaboratoriesGas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE) is a laboratory of the Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO). Located in Bangalore, its primary function is research and development of aero gas-turbines for military aircraft. It is responsible for development of GTX-35VS Kaveri Engine intended to power production models of LCA Tejas.Gunston, Bill (Ed.) (June 15, 2006). "GTRE Kaveri" in "Jane’s Aero-Engines", Issue 14.

Kaveri Marine Gas Turbine (KMGT)

Kaveri Marine Gas Turbine is an indigenously developed turbine by spinning off the Kaveri engine, which is used for propelling the Indian Light Combat Aircraft (Tejas). Using the core of the Kaveri engine, the scientists of GTRE have added low-pressure compressor and turbine as a gas generator and designed a free power turbine to generate shaft power for the maritime application. [ DRDO develops marine gas turbine engine for Indian Navy] ]

The Naval Dock Yard is capable of testing the gas turbines up to 25 MW of shaft power through a reduction gearbox and a water brake dynamometer.

The involvement of Indian Navy in the development of the engine including their participation during testing has given a tremendous push to the success achieved so far.


KMGT has been installed on to the Marine Gas Turbine test bed, which is an Indian Navy Facility at Vishakapatnam.

The engine has been tested to its potential of 12 MW at ISA SL 35°C condition, which is the requirement of Indian Navy for propelling the SNF (Rajput) class of ships. [ [ Modified Kaveri Engine to Propel Indian Navy Ships] ]
