Rockwell Automation has announced that the US Navy has awarded the company a $21.7 million contract for programmable automation controllers, variable frequency drives, software and engineering support services to operate machinery control systems onboard US Navy and Coast Guard surface ships. The award enables the Navy and other Department of Defense agencies to acquire engineered systems and services from Rockwell Automation vital to daily and strategic shipboard operations, domestically and globally.

Joe Moffa, Rockwell Automation marine business manager, says: “Control systems designed for the marine industry need to meet stringent requirements, especially for the US Navy, which operates world-class fleets 24/7 throughout the world. We are proud to meet these requirements and provide the machinery control systems, technical support and engineering services, on-site and through our global network of employees and distributors.”

Rockwell Automation products and software have been installed successfully onboard various Navy and Coast Guard ships since 1997. They are commercially available to navies worldwide in more than 80 countries where Rockwell Automation and its partners conduct business.
