The Saturn engine is a high speed (22,500 rpm), gas turbine engine requiring extreme tolerance and detail build precision.
EthosEnergy Light Turbines has extensive Saturn engine capability for many years, facility growth peaked in 2006 when there were four build areas dedicated to this product. With the introduction of Lean principles and a lower volume of throughput, we now have two dedicated build facilities which can handle significant volume upturn. EthosEnergy Light Turbines has full overhaul, build and test capability in a wide range of Saturn 10 and 20 engines. Both Mk1 and Mk2 configurations; 1201, 1202, 1301, 1302, 1501, 1502, 1601, 1602 together with multiple anti‐friction engine styles.
The Saturn product is a very mature product line and modifications are very few and far between at this time.
