DoD announces a maximum $170 million deal for two companies to provide OEM parts and services for diesel engines powering Military Sealift Command vessels.

US Military Sealift Command (MSC) is procuring fleet-wide diesel engine parts and services from Fairbanks Morse and Dubai-based MAN Diesel and Turbo in an IDIQ contract worth up to $170 million.

‘This award will provide parts and services from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for these diesel engines, and OEM authorised parts and service technicians in order to maintain the diesel engines aboard multiple classes of ships,’ the DoD announced on 21 May.

MSC vessels benefitting from the contract include submarine tenders, hospital ships, dry cargo ammunition ships, fleet replenishment oilers, expeditionary mobile bases and expeditionary transfer docks.

Also included are large, medium-speed roll-on/roll-off ships and the Kocak class of roll-on/roll-off container ships.

Work will be performed worldwide, with expected completion in May 2026.
