Curtiss-Wright has secured contracts worth more than $130m to support the US Navy’s Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine, and Ford (‘F’)-class aircraft carrier programmes.

The company will provide propulsion valves, pumps, and advanced instrumentation and control systems for these platforms.

Bechtel Plant Machinery and General Dynamics Electric Boat awarded the contracts to support ship construction, spare parts and submarine back-fit procurements.

Curtiss-Wright president and CEO Lynn M Bamford said: “Curtiss-Wright is pleased to have been awarded these important naval defence contracts, building upon our long-standing relationship with the US Nuclear Navy and reflecting our ongoing support of these critical naval defence platforms, which continue to receive strong Congressional support.

“We look forward to delivering the most advanced, reliable and vital technologies and remain well-positioned to benefit from the continued expansion of our US naval fleet.”

Contractual work will be carried out at the company’s facilities in New York and Pennsylvania within its ‘Defense Electronics’ and ‘Naval and Power’ segments.
