Curtiss-Wright has been awarded multiple contracts to provide propulsion valves, pumps and advanced instrumentation and control systems for the U.S. Navy’s Virginia-class nuclear powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine and Ford-class aircraft carrier programs, the company announced Tuesday.

“Curtiss-Wright is proud to have been awarded these important naval defense contracts, building upon our long-standing relationship with the U.S. Nuclear Navy and reflecting our ongoing support of these critical naval defense platforms, which continue to receive strong Congressional support,” said David Adams, chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright.

The total combined value of the contracts exceeds $220 million. The awards were received from Bechtel Plant Machinery Inc. (BPMI) and General Dynamics Electric Boat to support ship construction, spare parts and submarine back-fit procurements.

Curtiss-Wright will complete the work at its facilities in New York and Pennsylvania within the company’s Defense and Power Segments. The work is expected to be completed by 2024. 

“We look forward to delivering the most advanced, reliable and vital technologies and remain well-positioned to benefit from the continued expansion of our U.S. naval fleet,” concluded Adams.
