Eaton supports electrical infrastructure for Coast Guard cutters

  • 01-Dec-2011 10:09 EST

Eaton Corp. has been awarded an engineering services contract from the U.S. Coast Guard, in conjunction with Integrated Marine Services, valued at approximately $20 million. Under the contract, Eaton will provide electrical infrastructure preventative maintenance services for up to 12 Coast Guard cutter vessels in San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, and Hawaii. (A cutter is classified as any Coast Guard vessel that is 65 ft [20 m] or longer and has accommodations for crew to live on board.) Eaton’s services will be commissioned for up to five and a half years, though the Coast Guard aims to complete the project in two years. During periods of vessel availability, Eaton will provide necessary tools, materials, and approved test equipment along with the services of marine switchboard and circuit breaker service engineers. The commissioned engineers will perform circuit breaker overhaul and refurbishment, control panel inspections and testing, electrical preventative maintenance, and any additional electrical engineering service required, before providing a comprehensive service report.
