Curtiss-Wright Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Contract for Turkish Coast Guard Program

Curtiss Wright Corporation : 04 March, 2009  (Company News)
Curtiss-Wright Corporation's Flow Control segment has received a contract from Fincantieri S.p.A for the supply of four hybrid steel and aluminum telescopic hangars for the Turkish Coast Guard Search and Rescue Ship Program.
'Curtiss-Wright is pleased to continue its work with Fincantieri, and proud to be a part of a new ship program in Turkey,' said Martin R. Benante, CEO and Chairman of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. 'The supply of these hybrid telescopic hangars demonstrates our continuing engineering expertise in providing specialized structure solutions with innovative equipment designs that deliver superior value through operational efficiency.'

Curtiss-Wright's Flow Control facility in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, will perform work for this contract, with deliveries scheduled to begin in late 2009. With over 50 years of experience, Curtiss-Wright is a leader in designing and manufacturing ship-borne aircraft handling systems, underwater sensor handling and specialized structures for military customers. This hybrid steel and aluminum telescopic hangar is a variant of Curtiss-Wright's well-established telescopic hangar solutions. The hybrid hangar will utilize steel for greater structural strength in critical areas where required, combined with aluminum to keep overall weight to a minimum.

The Turkish Coast Guard Search and Rescue Ship Program is a joint Italian/Turkish program with RMK Marine of Turkey building the Fincantieri designed ships. In addition to search and rescue, the multi-function vessel is being designed to meet the various needs of today's Coast Guard Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) patrol, concerning smuggling prevention, fire extinguishing and pollution prevention.
