    GE wins another Navy contract

    The Rutland GE Aviation plants have been awarded an additional $2.6 million for a Navy contract for the development and production of fighter engines for the EA-18G Growler, the office of Sen. Patrick Leahy announced Friday.

    The modification is to a previously awarded contract. It comes on the heels of a $5.4 million contract made to GE Rutland last week.

    The contract is being divided among several GE plants and totals more than $22 million.

    GE Rutland received 12 percent — about $2.6 million — of the additional work.

    Leahy is the most senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and its Defense Subcommittee.

    GE has invested more than $75 million over three years in its Rutland blade and vane plants on Windcrest Road and Columbian Avenue.
