Fairbanks Morse Awarded Two Contracts



Fairbanks Morse, an EnPro Industries company, has been awarded a contract to deliver eight FM | Colt-Pielstick diesel engines to power four frigates for the Royal Saudi Navy. In addition, Fairbanks Morse has announced a multi-year $17.3 million contract to provide services to the U.S. Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC).

Diesel Engines for Royal Saudi Navy

The diesel engine purchase is a part of the Saudi Naval Expansion Program II that has been in the works for over a decade with a cost of about $20 billion.

"Fairbanks Morse has proudly built military-grade diesel engines for over seven decades from our manufacturing headquarters in the U.S.," said Andrew Smith, Director of Fairbanks Morse's Marine Segment. "We are pleased to have been selected for this project that will expand our global footprint while creating jobs that impact the local economy."

The frigates that the engines will be powering are based on the Freedom-class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) used by the U.S. Navy. The two 16-cylinder FM | Colt-Pielstick PA6B STC diesel engines per ship will deliver over 12 MW of propulsion power and are among the largest medium speed diesel engines manufactured in the U.S. The engines will begin to be manufactured in early 2019 with delivery scheduled for September 2020.

"The proposed sale will provide Saudi Arabia with an increased ability to meet current and future maritime threats from enemy weapon systems. The Multi-Mission Surface Combatant ships will provide protection-in-depth for critical industrial infrastructure and for the sea lines of communication," reads a U.S. State Department notification.

Each engine will be built at the Fairbanks Morse manufacturing facility in Beloit, WI, creating jobs for American workers. For over 70 years, Fairbanks Morse has provided the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard with diesel engines for marine propulsion and ship service systems. "Fairbanks Morse is the leading provider of propulsion diesel engines to the U.S. Navy," said a company spokesperson.

Service for U.S. Navy MSC

Fairbanks Morse has also announced a multi-year $17.3 million contract to provide services to the U.S. Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC), which will service military ships at sea and create jobs at its U.S.-based service centers.

"The agreement covers all MSC vessels with Fairbanks Morse engines and is one of the largest services contracts from the U.S. Navy in the company's history," said the spokesperson.

"We are committed to providing exceptional service in the industry and appreciate that MSC has entrusted our certified technicians to extend the lifecycle of the most rigorously used engines in the world," said Eduardo Echagarruga, Director of Services and Solutions at Fairbanks Morse. "This contract that covers all U.S.-based surface ships with Fairbanks Morse engines will directly benefit American workers as it will create jobs at our domestic service centers."

The engine models covered in the agreement include the FM | MAN 48/60, FM | ALCO 251F, FM | Colt-Pielstick PC4.2, and Fairbanks Morse 38D 8-1/8 that are installed on the following class vessels: AS (Submarine Tender), T-AKE (Dry Cargo/Ammunition), T-AO (Fleet Replenishment Oiler), T-ESB (Expeditionary Mobile Base) and T-ESD (Expeditionary Transfer Dock). Fairbanks Morse OEM authorized technical field service representatives will provide support services to overhaul, upgrade and perform preventative maintenance of engine systems, including scheduled overhauls at 10,000 - 12,000; 15,000 - 20,000; 30,000 - 40,000; and 60,000 - 80,000 operating hours.

"Fairbanks Morse Factory certified technicians undergo rigorous qualifications for earning and maintaining certification to set the standard service for excellence. OEM replacement parts from Fairbanks Morse deliver top performance and service life to ensure the highest level of reliability," said the spokesperson.
