Austal USA has received a $16.3 million contract to perform extended industrial post-delivery availability work on the US Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) 20, the future USS Cincinnati, at its Mobile, Alabama manufacturing facility.

The contract will see Austal USA perform work including engineering, management and production services in support of prefabrication efforts, material procurement and execution of work items for the LCS 20 extended industrial post-delivery availability.  

Craig Perciavalle, president, Austal USA, said: ‘We’re appreciative of the recognition and confidence the US Navy has displayed in us through continuous contractual awards in ship construction and post-delivery, including the recent award as prime contractor for the dry-docking of LCS 14.’

Post-delivery work is usually performed in San Diego, but Austal USA and the navy are working together to reduce post-delivery cost and increase efficiency by performing additional work at Austal’s facility in Alabama.
