Agreement worth US$53 million

Fairbanks Morse was awarded a six-year contract for engine lifecycle support by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG).

The agreement, worth approximately US$53 million, covers the USCG’s 270-ft. WMEC Famous Class Cutters. As part of the USCG 270-foot WMEC Service Life Extension Program (SLEP), Fairbanks Morse was awarded this contract to provide services, personnel, facilities, expertise, technological information, special tools, supplies and incidental materials necessary to ensure the longevity of the fleet’s 18-cylinder FM 251F engines. The contract also includes delivery and installation of new engines, spare parts and nonrecurring engineering work.

The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded Fairbanks Morse with a six-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to maximize and improve engine lifecycle support for the USCG’s 270-foot WMEC Famous Class Cutters.

“Fairbanks Morse has been a trusted engine and service provider to the U.S. Coast Guard for many decades, and it’s an immense honor to be selected to provide engines and services for its vessels,” said Fairbanks Morse CEO George Whittier. “We are fully committed to supporting our country’s national defense by delivering reliable products and quality service that facilitate mission-critical operations.”

Through an IDIQ contract, pricing for support services is streamlined under a single agreement, eliminating the administrative, time and cost burdens associated with working through an intermediate party. Fairbanks Morse provides Factory Certified OEM Technicians who undergo rigorous qualifications to meet the company’s high standards for delivering best-in-class support. These technicians will deliver enhanced performance and improved service life while ensuring the highest level of reliability and efficiency for USCG 270-foot Famous Class Cutters.
