New contract for GD NASSCO-Norfolk

4th August 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics NASSCO-Norfolk has been awarded a five year maintenance contract from the US Navy for non-nuclear planning and maintenance work on five aircraft carriers, the company announced on 2 August.

The work will be performed during six Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) availabilities, on one Gerald R Ford-class aircraft carrier and four Nimitz-class carriers. The carriers will be either visiting or home-ported in Norfolk, Virginia. Continuing or emergent maintenance repairs will also be conducted as required.

The company will also perform planned incremental availability work on USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75), a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, for fiscal year 2016. The work will be carried out under a $23 million cost-plus-award-fee modification, as part of an add-on to a previously-awarded contract. 

Work will include ship-repair services to update and improve the carrier's military and technical capabilities; and planning and execution of depot-level modifications, alternations and maintenance. Services will be complete by May 2017.
