General Dynamics Electric Boat will carry out modernisation work and maintenance on the USS Hartford (SSN-768) Los Angeles-class attack submarine following the issue of a contract modification by the US Navy.

The modification, worth $41.6 million, is for a contract that was initially awarded in April 2012 and has a potential value of $58.7 million if all options are exercised.

The contract will see Electric Boat, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, perform a dry-docking selected restricted availability, which consists of maintenance work, upgrades and modernisation activities required to ensure the submarine is operating at full technical capacity.

According to General Dynamics, the work will take place at the Electric Boat shipyard in Groton and is scheduled for completion in July 2013.
