(Press Release)
Thursday, August 23, 2012

L-3 SPD Electrical Systems (L-3 SPDES) has been awarded a contract from Huntington Ingalls Industries Shipbuilding to supply the Medium Voltage Switchgear and the associated circuit breakers for the U.S. Navy’s latest amphibious assault ship, the LHA 7.


The L-3 SPDES Medium Voltage Switchgear and circuit breakers provide the proven, compact, shock-tested power equipment needed to support electrical distribution for the ship’s services and operating requirements. L-3 SPDES is a trusted supplier, having provided similar power distribution products on all Nimitz-class carriers, as well as LHD 8 and LHA 6. Additionally, L-3 SPDES offers product support and maintenance through its depot repair facility.


“Through strong program performance on LHA 6, we are well-positioned to once again provide the Medium Voltage Switchgear for LHA 7,” said Christine Montalvo, president of L-3 SPDES. “We responded to the U.S. Navy’s challenge to build more affordable ships by using an approach that minimized non-recurring efforts. In turn, the U.S. Navy responded to a strong business model that enabled favorable pricing and the all-important objective to minimize ship acquisition costs.”
