Fairbanks Morse of Beloit could benefit from Navy contract
Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics currently each make a version of the ship, and the navy has decided to rely on just one contractor.
Fairbanks Morse spokesman, John Bottorf, says they're expecting a decision from the navy in July, although it may be later.
One ship, produced by Lockheed Martin, has already been delivered to the navy. Each ship is run by two 16 cylinder Fairbanks Morse diesel engines and two gas turbines made by Rolls Royce.
