Quantum Marine Engineering of Fort Lauderdale was awarded a contract to supply the roll stabilization systems for the U.S. Coast Guard's new class of fast response cutters.

Quantum was chosen because of its design, weight control, previous experience and excellent responsiveness and professional approach to meet the customer's requirements, according to Bollinger Shipyards Inc., the prime contractor. The contract calls for up to 34 of these new ships to be built and delivered to the Coast Guard over a multiyear contract.

"This award serves to further strengthen Quantum's rapidly growing military business for stabilization and hydraulic systems," said John Allen, president of Quantum, in a statement.

Over the past three years Quantum has been awarded contracts from a range of military customers and builders to supply roll stabilization systems for coastal patrol vessels, offshore patrol vessels, frigates and a number of special projects.
