JBT Corporation wins US$6m engineering order for aviation support equipment
JBT Corporation has been awarded an engineering contract for over US$6m from the U.S. Navy for mobile power equipment. The contract is for engineering and prototype design work for a new-generation mobile shipboard power generator equipment for Navy and Marine Corps aircraft to be based on aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships. In addition to being efficient, economical and environmentally friendly, the Navy’s specifications require JBT to meet military standards for equipment built to withstand the effects of shipboard shock and vibration, temperature extremes, humidity and salt spray, and electro-magnetic interference (EMI). This contract order is a first phase of a larger potential multi-year equipment contract. The order was received in the first quarter of 2015, with delivery on the project expected to be initiated in 2016.
