Marine Olympus powered a lot of ships.

Many Olympus engines are still in use as peak demand power generators in static installations.

Not that odd.  Olympus was a very successful power plant in industrial power generation and marine applications.  It was pretty much the standard turbine for the Royal Navy: Bristol, Invincibles, Type 21, Type 42, Type 22.  It was widely exported as well.
