Rolls-Royce has secured a six-year, $70.3M contract to help the U.S. Navy repair and maintain controllable pitch propeller hubs for guided-missile destroyers, cruisers, landing docks and mine countermeasures ships.
The company will provide these services to support America-class, Arleigh Burke-class, Harpers Ferry-class, Makin Island-class, San Antonio-class, Ticonderoga-class and Whidbey Island-class vessels, the Department of Defense said Friday. Repairs will also cover that of oil distribution boxes used in these ships.
Work will take place in Walpole, Mass., through April 2026, with a five-year ordering period.
Naval Surface Warfare Center will use $3.4M in fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance funds to finance the sole-source contract's initial obligation.
