Rolls-Royce has received a $27.3 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy to deliver provisioned item orders, engineering services and associated support for the Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyers’ turbine-generator sets.
The Defense Department said Wednesday the main and auxiliary turbine-generator sets will serve as the primary power source of Zumwalt-class ships.
Turbine-generator sets are comprised of gas turbine engines, generators, control systems and mounting equipment.
Work will occur in Indianapolis, Indiana and Walpole, Massachusetts through September 2022.
The Naval Sea Systems Command will obligate $1,025,000 at time of award from the Navy’s fiscal 2017 shipbuilding and conversion funds.
