Rockwell Automation to Deliver Shipboard Controllers to Navy, Coast Guard; Joe Moffa Comments

Rockwell Automation has won a $21.7 million contract to provide the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard with programmable automation controllers, software, frequency drives and engineering support services.

The company said these systems and services are for operating machinery control systems on surface ships for both branches.

“Control systems designed for the marine industry need to meet stringent requirements, especially for the U.S. Navy, which operates world-class fleets 24/7 throughout the world,” said Joe Moffa, marine business manager. “We are proud to meet these requirements and provide the machinery control systems, technical support and engineering services, on-site and through our global network of employees and distributors.”

Both the Navy and other defense agencies can use the contract acquire engineered systems and services from Rockwell for daily and strategic shipboard operations both local and worldwide.

The company’s products and software have been used onboard Navy and Coast Guard ships since 1997
