The U.S. Navy awarded engine maker Fairbanks Morse an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract that could be worth up to $13.6 million over five years. Thirty percent, or up to $4 million, of the work is expected to flow to San Diego. Wisconsin-based Fairbanks Morse has a facility in National City.

The contract has firm-fixed-priced ordering provisions for engineering and technical services, logistics support, engine training and program management services in support of U.S. Navy diesel engine systems.

The Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Division awarded the contract without competitive bidding. The government determined that Fairbanks Morse was the only company able to satisfy its requirements.
