LED lighting technology company, Energy Focus, has been awarded a contract worth around $1.7 million to supply a US-based shipbuilder with LED lighting tube and fixture products.
The products, which are US Navy-approved, will be installed in four new navy ships through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program that allows US allied countries to purchase defense articles and services.
The Company expects to deliver on the contract beginning in the second quarter of 2020 with completion expected by the end of 2021.
James Tu, Chairman & CEO of Energy Focus, said: “This contract is from a new shipbuilder customer who values the innovation, performance, quality and reliability of our Navy products.
“This news follows our recent $3.4 million order to provide LED lighting products for existing US Navy ships and signifies Energy Focus’ expanding leadership in US and allied Navy markets, for both retrofit and new shipbuilding applications.”
“This contract demonstrates that Energy Focus is not only the go-to LED lighting supplier for Navy retrofit, but is also well-positioned for the global ship construction market, serving both military and non-military customers,” said Tim Grindstaff, VP of Business Development. “With shipbuilding activities for U.S. and allied navies expected to increase over the coming years, we look forward to continuing to expand our relationships and bringing our advanced technologies and products to serve this prestigious market.”
