General Dynamics - $10 Million For Work on USS Texas

General Dynamics : 16 March, 2007  (New Product)
U.S. Navy Awards General Dynamics $10 Million For Work on USS Texas
The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat a $10 million contract modification to continue to perform a range of work on USS Texas (SSN-775) during its post-shakedown availability (PSA). Electric Boat is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD). The contract being modified has an estimated total potential value of $85 million.

The PSA comprises maintenance, repairs, alterations, testing and other activities and will involve more than 500 current employees at its peak. The repairs are scheduled to be completed in February 2008.

USS Texas is the second 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 Newport News, have received contracts to produce 10 Virginia-class submarines.
