US Navy awards maintenance and repair contract to FMS

Fairbanks Morse Service (FMS) has secured several contracts from the US Navy and Military Sealift Command (MSC) for maintenance and repair services.

The company has also been awarded multiple contracts by the US Navy, including a five-year basic ordering agreement and a four-year IDIQ global repair services contract for submarine emergency diesel generators (EDG).

Furthermore, FMS signed a five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract with MSC.

The MSC IDIQ contract is valued at a maximum of $170 million and encompasses parts, service, technical support, planned maintenance, engineering, technical publications, and configuration management support for various types of ships.

These include vehicle cargo vessels, Lewis and Clark-class dry cargo ships, the new John Lewis-class replenishment oiler, and the Henry J Kaiser replenishment oiler.

The US Navy contracts, which were awarded by the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Philadelphia Division, are valued at a combined maximum of $60 million. 

These contracts are for rapid deployment of personnel to support emergent assessments, planning, and restoration of EDGs and providing a vehicle for the planned submarine renewals as the navy extends the service life of these mission-critical assets.

The contracts support SSBN/SSGN 726, SSN 688, and SSN 21 Class submarines with Fairbanks Morse EDGs.

Fairbanks Morse recently delivered four FM 6L48/60CR engines to General Dynamics NASSCO in San Diego for Military Sealift Command on the USS John L. Canley (ESB 6).
