Curtiss-Wright Awarded Contract to Provide Generators for US Navy Columbia-Class Submarine

Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced that it has been awarded contracts valued at approximately $120 million when fully funded to provide generators for the U.S. Navy’s next-generation Columbia-class submarine.

“We are very proud to have been chosen by Northrop Grumman to provide generators for this significant U.S. nuclear naval defense platform. The Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) program is the U.S. Navy’s top priority to maintain the nation’s force structure, and Curtiss-Wright’s selection for this award reflects our long-standing commitment to and our ongoing support of the U.S. Navy’s most critical platforms,” said Lynn M.
