Vigor has been awarded a $254.6 million contract to modernise the US Navy’s USS Chosin and USS Cape St George Ticonderoga-class cruisers

Work will include maintenance, modernisation and repair to keep the ships combat effective so that they are able to continue supporting fleet operations, and the contract includes options that if exercised would have a total value of $303.7 million.  

Work will be performed at Vigor's Harbor Island facility in Seattle, and is expected to begin in December and be completed by November 2021.

‘Ship repair and service life extension in the defence sector has been a growth area for Vigor’s Pacific Northwest shipyards,’ Adam Beck, Vigor’s executive VP of ship repair, said. 

‘This contract award allows us to maintain and build upon the quality, skilled workforce so necessary to maintain the mission readiness of the US naval fleet.’ 

Other recent work for Vigor’s naval business includes for the USS Sampson Arleigh Burke-class destroyer and the USS Coronado and USS Manchester  Independence-class Littoral Combat Ships.
