Fairbanks Morse has been awarded a multi-year, multi-million-dollar service contract by the Military Sealift Command (MSC), which services US Navy ships.
The agreement, worth $17.3 million, covers all MSC vessels with Fairbanks Morse engines.
It is one of the largest services contracts from the US Navy in the company’s history, according to Fairbanks Morse.
“We (…) appreciate that MSC has entrusted our certified technicians to extend the lifecycle of the most rigorously used engines in the world,” Eduardo Echagarruga, director of services and solutions at Fairbanks Morse, said.
“This contract that covers all US-based surface ships with Fairbanks Morse engines will directly benefit American workers as it will create jobs at our domestic service centers,” he added.
The engine models covered in the agreement include the FM | MAN 48/60, FM | ALCO 251F, FM | Colt-Pielstick PC4.2, and Fairbanks Morse 38D 8-1/8 that are installed on the following class vessels: AS (Submarine Tender), T-AKE (Dry Cargo/Ammunition), T-AO (Fleet Replenishment Oiler), T-ESB (Expeditionary Mobile Base), and T-ESD (Expeditionary Transfer Dock).
