General Dynamics $47 Million For Post-Shakedown Work on USS North Carolina


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
General Dynamics
: 22 December, 2008  (Application Story)
The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat two contract modifications totaling $46.5 million to perform work on USS North Carolina (SSN-777) during its post-shakedown availability (PSA). Electric Boat is a wholly owned subsidiary
of General Dynamics.
The PSA will include maintenance, repairs, alterations, testing and other activities and will involve more than 500 current employees at its peak. Scheduled for completion in March 2010, the contract has an estimated total potential value of $70 million.

USS North Carolina is the fourth ship of the Virginia class, the first of the Navy's major combatants to be designed specifically for post-Cold War missions. Electric Boat and its construction teammate, Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding, have received contracts to produce 10 Virginia-class submarines.
