The Charleston-based company will continue providing alternative fuel qualification testing for the Navy and will manage the work in Pittsburgh. The work is similar to a contract Life Cycle Engineering had already won that calls for testing of two other fuels. That contract will finish by mid-2013.
“Award of this contract allows Life Cycle Engineering to continue our support of the Naval Air Systems Command by providing testing for up to two additional fuels as well as to incorporate several lessons learned from the first round of tests,” said Ken Siegman, vice president and regional director of the National Capitol Region of the company’s Engineering Services Group, in the release. “(Life Cycle Engineering) is proud to be part of the team that is working to achieve the Secretary of the Navy’s primary energy goal of reducing the Navy’s dependence on petroleum.”
