US Army Awards $490M For Tactical Generators

The US Army has awarded a $490 million worth contract to Cummins Power Generation Inc. for Advanced Medium Mobile Power Sources (AMMPS), the third generation of Department of Defense military standard generators.

“Cummins Power Generation Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota, was awarded a $490,959,400 firm-fixed-price contract for Advanced Medium Mobile Power Sources,” the DOD announced Wednesday.

According to the DoD’s statement, work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Aug. 28, 2022.

AMMPS are replacing second generation Tactical Quiet Generators, which have a 25 year old design, and providing significant operational improvements that greatly decrease the logistics footprint on the battlefield. The current family of AMMPS consists of five versions: the 5 kW, 10kW, 15kW, 30kW, 60kW generators.
