Army orders more tactical generators

May 23, 2011 at 1:30 PM

OAKLAND, N.J., May 23 (UPI) -- New Jersey's Dewey Electronics Corp. is supplying the U.S. Army with additional tactical generators under a $2.3 million delivery order.

The order came a 10-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contract awarded in 2001 by the U.S. Army's Communications Electronics Command at Fort Monmouth, N.J.

Dewey said the delivery order is for both the AC and DC versions of the 2kW diesel-operated military tactical generator with shipments to begin in August. Deliveries are expected to be completed by the end of next February.

"This order is evidence that the (Department of Defense's) demand for our reliable and small diesel generators remains strong," said John Dewey, president and chief executive of Dewey Electronics. "We look forward to continuing to supply our 2kW diesel-operated MTG generators to CECOM through this delivery order and after our prime contract ends this summer."

The 2kW MTG is used throughout the Defense Department with more than 15,000 fielded by Dewey since 1996.
