Fill’er Up(click to view larger) Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Corp. in Farmingdale, NY received a $47.5 million indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract for electric valve operator (EVO) assemblies and associated technical data to replace existing EVO units and manifold bonnet assemblies used on JP-5 jet fuel storage tank manifolds. The EVO assemblies are automated, sealed solenoid valves that operate the flow of jet fuel… Curtiss-Wright’s EVO assemblies replace the existing motor-operated valves that required significant maintenance to avoid leakage of JP-5 jet fuel during transfer on aircraft carrier decks. The company is retrofitting all of the pumping station valves on the US Navy’s aircraft carrier fleet. Additionally, the company has identified a number of auxiliary ship systems and ship classes that could benefit from its automated, sealed solenoid valve system. Curtiss-Wright will perform the work at its facility in Farmingdale and expects to complete it by September 2014. This contract was competitively procured via the FedBizOpp Web site, with 1 offer received by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division in Philadelphia, PA (N65540-09-D-0023).
