Case Study: Partners In Success

In 2014 Huntington Ingalls Industries / Newport News Shipbuilding awarded Barber-Nichols a multi-year contract to produce MK21 Air Turbine Pump Assemblies for the U.S. Navy’s Virginia-Class Submarine Program. The contract for twenty units to be delivered over a five-year period starting in 2015, was BNI’s largest contract to date, and the award was based in part on the company’s past performance supplying the ten-stage MK21 Air Turbine Subassembly. But this case study doesn’t start with the 2014 MK21 Air Turbine Pump contract award, it starts in the 1980s with some engineers trying to figure out how to cost effectively manufacture an extremely quiet ten-stage turbine.
