White River Junction, VT -- January 5, 2011 -- Rob Hewett, Concepts NREC’s Contract Manager, announced that Concepts NREC, based in White River Junction, has been awarded an Army contract valued at between $2.99M and $3.29M, completing a complex nine-month negotiations effort.
The contract, for 16 torque measurement systems (torquemeters) along with an installation option, came out of a multi-year development effort funded through an earlier Army contract as well as production shipments to the Navy in 2009.
Torquemeters provide highly accurate measurements for high-speed torque measurement applications such as those required by gas turbine engine repair facilities. Torquemeters monitor the torque, speed, and output power of turboshaft engines that are performance tested prior to use in an aircraft. Concepts NREC VAROC® dynamometer products, including its new line of field-calibrate-able VHP torquemeters, enable safe pre-flight, ground testing of turboshaft gas turbine engines.
These Concepts NREC VAROC products enable military readiness, while preserving pilot and aircraft safety. The base for the dynamometer products is the company's Product Center in Woburn, MA.
