Converteam $31m Additional Navy Funding

Monday, August 17, 2009

The United States Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington Navy Yard, D.C., awarded Converteam Inc. $31m to provide the long lead materials (for the DDG-1000 Baseline Tactical High Voltage Power Subsystem, HVPS) for use in the Navy's integrated power system Land Based Test Site (LBTS) located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and to supply hardware and provide technical leadership on the HVPS.

With Converteam's Integrated Power Systems (IPS) role they will be providing technical leadership to the U.S. Navy to assist in the integration of the HVPS, Low Voltage Power Subsystem (LVPS) and Electric Control Systems (ECS). The entire HVPS project scope includes an Advanced Induction Motor, VDM25000 drive, switchboards, harmonic filters and resistors for dynamic braking and neutral grounding, and LBTS commissioning and engineering to support integration. The HVPS distributes electrical power from the ship's turbine-generators to the various electrical loads and also provides for electric propulsion.

Work will be performed at the Converteam manufacturing facility in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and at the LBTS in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Scheduled completion is set for March 2011.
