Austal USA Bags Procurement Deal from US Navy

Austal USA was awarded a $53.4 million contract to procure long-lead materials for the 11th Expeditionary Fast Transport for the U.S. Navy.

The award covers materials including main propulsion engines, generators, water jets, main reduction gears, and other long-lead time items.

Austal’s EPF program is steadily maturing with five ships delivered and three more under construction at its Mobile, Ala. facility. The 338-ft Spearhead-class EPF is currently providing high-speed, high-payload transport capability to fleet and combatant commanders.

In addition to the EPF program, Austal is also building 10 Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) for the U.S. Navy under a $3.5 billion block-buy contract. Three LCS have been delivered while an additional six are in various stages of construction.
