RIX Industries has inked a $1.6m contract with the Defence Logistics Agency (DLA) for the supply of liquefier modules for the US Navy’s existing shipboard-qualified liquid oxygen production systems, also provided by RIX.
Already deployed onboard various other aircraft carriers, including USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) and USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79), the RIX liquid oxygen plant employs an integrated autonomous design that delivers nearly “hands-free” pure liquid oxygen on demand.
Bryan Reid, Chief Sales Officer at RIX Industries, said, “This new contract builds on our 100+ year relationship with the US Navy. Through close collaboration and mutual trust, we have delivered high-quality, high-reliability solutions designed to keep our military safe and successful.”
“Our long-standing commitment to the Navy earned us an important role on the USS Gerald R. Ford CVN 78 – the most advanced aircraft carrier ever built. And with this additional award, the DoD is furthering that investment in the health, safety, and overall preparedness of our combat personnel.”
