TURBINE ENGINES FOR B. R. T.

Issue 26 and Volume 39.

TURBINE ENGINES FOR B. R. T. Two new Westinghouse turbine engines are to be installed at the Williamsburg bridge power station at the Brooklyn, New York, Rapid Transit company within a short time—making a total of four engines of that type, as two are already in operation there. These engines generate 7,500-kilowatts apiece—a total of nearly 45,000-horsepower for the four engines. Exclusive of the Williamsburg station, the present combined power of all stations amounts to front 45,000 to 50,000 kilowatts. The cost of the Williamsburg station, when completed and fully equipped, is estimated at $3,000,000. This equipment will amount to six generators, including the four new Westinghouse turbines, and the new 8,250-horsepower turbine already in operation.
