Electric Boat to overhaul USS Hartford

17th August 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) has issued a $125.82 million contract for General Dynamics Electric Boat  to plan, design and execute engineering overhaul services on the Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarine USS Hartford.

The contract was not competitively procured, the DoD noted on 14 August.

Work will be performed in Groton, Connecticut, and is expected to be completed by February 2022. 

General Dynamics Electric Boat is a long-time provider of support services and engineering overhauls for USS Hartford.

Shephard Defence Insight notes that the USN is phasing out the Los Angeles class in favour of the newer Virginia class but almost half of the total fleet of 62 boats remain in service and are expected to remain so for some time.
