SPD Awarded Contract

For Integrated

Electric Drive System

SPD Technologies has been awarded a $6.7-million contract to design and produce the 5,000-volt switchgear for the U.S. Navy's sur- face ship Integrated Electric Drive


The contract was awarded by

General Electric's Naval and Drive

Turbine System Division in Fitch- burg, Mass., prime contractor for the IED development program.

Scheduled for delivery in August 1993, the switchgear will be in- stalled in the Navy's Land Based

Test Site at the Naval Ship Systems

Engineering Station (NAVSSES) in

Philadelphia, Pa.

The contract is the result of sev- eral years' work with GE to assist in system/concept development as re- lated to switchgear and the overall electrical protection system. Re- cently, the Chief of Naval Opera- tions announced the Navy's inten- tion to power future surface comba- tants with electric drive propulsion systems.

SPD president George M. Gor- don said being a member of the IED team was a significant win which positions SPD to be a strong partici- pant in a very critical aspect of the ongoing "revolution at sea" concept formulated by Vice Adm. Metcalf,

USN (ret.).

Mr. Gordon said the company is already receiving inquiries from shipbuilders and Navy program of- fices concerning similar equipment
