Fairbanks Morse, part of EnPro Industries, has been awarded an indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Navy. The agreement, worth approximately $13.5 million, will cover all U.S. Navy ships with Fairbanks Morse engines to enable improved lifecycle support and maximize Fairbanks Morse products in critical applications.
The support Fairbanks Morse will provide to the US Navy will include technical and engineering services, logistics, training and administrative and program management efforts related to diesel engine lifecycles and in-service operations. Fairbanks Morse will provide services, personnel, facilities, expertise, technical information, special tools, supplies and incidental materials necessary to ensure the longevity of the vessels.
Â â€œThe team at Fairbanks Morse is honored that the US Navy has entrusted our certified technicians to extend the lifecycle of the most rigorously used engines in the world,â€ said Deepak Navnith, president of Fairbanks Morse. â€œAdditionally, this extensive contract will provide American workers with jobs in our service centers across the country.â€
This IDIQ contract allows the Navy to eliminate the administrative, time and cost burdens associated with working through an intermediate party rather than interacting directly with Fairbanks Morse. This agreement will streamline pricing for support services under a single agreement, Fairbanks Morse said.
