AP&M Field Service and Rolls-Royce Naval Marine Inc have entered into a Teaming Agreement to focus efforts on supporting Ship Transfer programs for the U.S. Navy. The program will combine the expertise of Rolls-Royce Naval Marine in servicing of shipboard Allison 501 generator sets and propeller propulsion
systems with AP&M Field Services LM2500 shipboard service capabilities.
A contract to support the four-ship, KIDD Class transfer program for the Republic of China (Taiwan) Navy was awarded to Rolls-Royce in May. Rolls-Royce will maintain overall program management, while AP&M Field Services provides on-site project management and LM2500 technical service. The scope could include gas turbine controls
modification and certification for both the Allison generator sets and LM2500 propulsion systems. The program also provides Aviation, Power & Marine, Inc. an opportunity to utilize its extensive inventory of LM2500 parts to expedite these transfer programs and assure the US and Foreign Navy’s optimum value. The KIDD Class transfer program is expected to run through the fourth quarter 2005.
