This new delivery order is entirely for Energy Focus' Intellitube(R) LED retrofit tubes. This true plug and play technology allows for direct fit into existing fluorescent sockets with or without the ballast in place. The proprietary circuit and LED lamp designed by Energy Focus is now employed and installed in more than 140 naval vessels in the vast U.S. Navy military fleet, up from fewer than 20 in the beginning of 2014.
"Over the past year, we have built extensive relationships with the U.S. Navy at various levels from the Pentagon to the ship forces, which now are broadly aware of the economic and sustainability benefits of our LED technologies, as well as the availability of our LED products," said Eric Hilliard, President and Chief Operating Officer of Energy Focus. "We are extremely excited about and grateful for the unwavering commitment to energy and maintenance savings, as well as carbon reductions made by the leadership in the U.S. Navy. We are equally committed to working with and supporting all constituencies from the Navy to expedite their LED adoption initiatives in the quarters and years to come."
"We are absolutely honored with the confidence the U.S. Navy has placed in Energy Focus and our LED products," said James Tu, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Energy Focus. "With over three decades of advanced lighting development experience and a long-term research partnership with the U.S. government in LED lighting since 2002, Energy Focus remains the only Navy Military-Spec qualified LED replacement lamp provider. We are also proud to say there has been zero failure in the lamps we have put on U.S. Navy ships since our first installation in 2007. We plan and fully expect to leverage our proven technologies and the resounding successes we have had with the U.S. Navy to build our presence and leadership in the broader maritime market, including military and non-military vessels that together represent a total addressable market of over $4 billion."
