Curtiss-Wright Awarded $14.6M in Contracts

Thursday, February 23, 2006
Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced it has been awarded $14.6 million of contracts from Northrop Grumman Newport News to design and manufacture engineered pumps for use on the United States Navy's next generation CVN-21 Class aircraft carriers. The pumps will be manufactured by Curtiss-Wright's Flow Control segment located in Phillipsburg, NJ, and delivered in 2008 and 2009. Construction on the first aircraft carrier is scheduled to begin in 2007, but Curtiss-Wright began development work for the program in 2001 and will provide many of the carrier's long-lead products, including pumps, valves and generator systems. The newly designed CVN-21 is more than 1,000 feet in length, has a flight deck width of 252 feet, and will accommodate 75 military aircraft, as well as more than 4,600 crew members. The carrier will be powered by two nuclear reactors.
