NavyShipThe U.S. Navy has selected a subsidiary of EnPro Indutries‘ to deliver main propulsion diesel engines for the USNS John Lewis replenishment oiler ship.

EnPro’s Fairbanks Morse subsidiary said Monday it will build two FM-MAN 12V 48/60 CR engines in its Beloit, Wisconsin facility and provide propulsion control systems, auxiliary equipment and commissioning services under the Navy order.

Fairbanks Morse will design the engines to feature 19,000 brake horsepower each and have common rail fuel injection, engine control and exhaust after-treatment systems.

“Common rail fuel injection technology reduces fuel consumption and reduces the total life cycle cost for the Navy, which provides a significant benefit to the T-AO 205 program,” said Fairbanks Morse President Marvin Riley.

National Steel and Shipbuilding Co. — a subsidiary of General Dynamics – will build John Lewis as the first of 17 T-AO 205-class double-hulled tankers that the Navy plans to acquire to replace its fleet of single-hull tankers.

The Military Sealift Command will operate John Lewis to aid Navy surface ships at sea.
