U.S. Navy inks $1.7M deal to fit four new ships with LED
Four new Navy ships under construction through the Foreign Military Sales program will be installing LED lighting through a $1.7 million contract with Energy Focus, Inc.
The U.S. Navy-approved LED products will be supplied to a U.S.-based shipbuilder who works with U.S. allied countries purchasing defense articles and services.
“This contract is from a new shipbuilder customer who values the innovation, performance, quality and reliability of our Navy products,” James Tu, Chairman and CEO of Energy Focus, said in a statement. “This news follows our recent $3.4 million order to provide LED lighting products for existing U.S. Navy ships and signifies Energy Focus’ expanding leadership in U.S. and allied Navy markets, for both retrofit and new shipbuilding applications.”
The contract is expected to be executed beginning in the second quarter of 2020 and completed by the end of 2021.
Energy Focus has worked with the U.S. Navy to provide LED lighting since 2007.
