Curtiss-Wright wins contracts to support US Navy programmes

US-based Curtiss-Wright has won contracts worth more than $220m to provide support to US Navy submarine and aircraft carrier programmes.

US-based Curtiss-Wright has won contracts worth more than $220m to provide support to US Navy submarine and aircraft carrier programmes.

Under the contracts, the company will provide propulsion values, pumps, and advanced instrumentation and control systems for a Virginia-class nuclear powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine, and Ford-class aircraft carrier programmes.

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

Work under the contract will be performed at Curtiss-Wright’s facilities in New York and Pennsylvania by its defense and power segments.

Engineering and manufacturing work has commenced and is expected to continue until 2024.

Curtiss-Wright chairman and CEO David C Adams said: “Curtiss-Wright is proud 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.

The contracts, valued at more than $80m, were awarded by BPMI and GDEB.

In November 2019, Curtiss-Wright agreed to acquire 901D Holdings for $132m.
