Electric Boat awarded sub support contract modification
It was announced on 22 April that the US Navy had awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat a $20 million contract modification for nuclear-maintenance work for its submarines homeported at the Naval Submarine Base in Newe London, Groton.
Under the contract, Electric Boat will continue to operate the Nuclear Regional Maintenance Department (NRMD) at the submarine base. The company will provide project management, planning, training and nuclear services to support maintenance, modernisation and repairs. A core group of about 25 Electric Boat employees are assigned to the NRMD, with surge groups of up to 100 shipyard employees assigned for short periods.
The company has been awarded two initial contract modifications to date, valued at $25 million. The contract has a total potential value of $164 million over five years.
The naval base is the birth place of the US submarine force and is also home to the Naval Submarine Support Facility. Currently, it is the home port of a number of Los Angeles and Virginia Class attack submarines.
