Eaton Corp. has been awarded an equipment contract with the U.S. FAA projected to exceed $40 million over a 10-year period. One of three FAA contracts currently held by Eaton, the new agreement encompasses three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS), maintenance bypass panels, and other associated power quality equipment, which will be deployed in mission-critical FAA installations throughout the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico. The contract, which features a two-year base period with four additional two-year options, was awarded to Eaton following a five-year process, during which all equipment underwent rigorous FAA testing. A separate Eaton support contract, which provides services and spare parts to approximately 1000 FAA sites, was also renewed for an additional five years.
