Rolls-Royce to Build Power & Propulsion Equipment for Navy Oiler Ships - top government contractors - best government contracting eventRolls-Royce has received a contract to build power and propulsion equipment for the U.S. Navy‘s fleet of replenishment oiler ships.

The company said Monday the contract covers work on two Kamewa 150A controllable pitch propellers and two Bergen B32:40xL8A generator sets for the first John Lewis-class ship with options for five more.

Don Roussinos, president of Rolls-Royce’s naval division, said the contract builds on Rolls-Royce’s partnership with the San Diego shipyard hub of General Dynamics' NASSCO subsidiary, where the first John Lewis-class ship will be built.

Rolls-Royce has scheduled delivery of equipment for the lead ship to occur in in 2018.

The Navy and NASSCO plan to build 17 John Lewis-class ships at a one-per-year rate from 2017 onward and each vessel will be designed to carry 156,000 barrels of fuel oil at speeds of up to 20 knots.
