Under a contract secured from Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII) Newport News Shipbuilding, Amiad will supply a pre-filtration solution providing protection for the reverse osmosis (RO) system to provide fresh water.
The Amiad filtration solution was selected to extend the life of the RO membranes as well as reduce operating costs.
The Amiad order follows the successful installation of Amiad filters in the first carrier of the class, the USS Gerald R Ford (CVN 78), which was launched on 17 November 2013.
Arik Dayan, CEO of Amiad Water Systems, said: “We are delighted to be supplying the next US aircraft carrier with our advanced filters as it emphasizes the important role Amiad’s solutions perform within the filtration process – as per our strategy to be at the heart of any water system throughout the world. We’re proud that HII has chosen to award this contract to Amiad, which demonstrates the strength of our offering, and we look forward to working with them and successfully delivering this project.”
