Curtiss-Wright to Support Columbia-Class SSBN Program
Curtiss-Wright Corporation has 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,” said Lynn M. Bamford, President and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “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.”
The Columbia-class submarine will replace the fleet of Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines. The lead ship is scheduled to be delivered to the Navy in 2027.
Curtiss-Wright is performing this work at its Cheswick, Pennsylvania facility within the Company’s Naval & Power Segment.
