Title:
TURBINIA, first steam turbine powered ship, (Turbina)
This revolutionary Craft was the first steam turbine powered ship. It was constructed as an experimental vessel in 1894, and instantly became the fastest ship in the world by far, Turbinia would change shipbuilding philosophy forever. This proof of concept proved that the use of turbine power plants had some powerful advantages over the old steam powerplants of the time. It was the equivalent of switching from piston powered engines on aircraft to jet engine power.
