Avondale Wins Preliminary NAVSEA Design Contract

NAVSEA recently announced the award of contracts to Avondale Industries Inc. and four other ship- yards for preliminary design studies on the LX (LPD 17) ship. Expected to last approximately one year, the contract amounts to $480,000.

The construction program for the LPD 17 is expected to be a multiship project, with the first contract for construction expected by around 1996.

Current plans call for 12 of the vessels to be constructed, to address a major obsolescence problem expected to be caused by the decommissioning of more than 30 Navy amphibious ships in the next 10 years.

Avondale is a leader in marine fabrication. In addition to shipbuilding capabilities, the company specializes in boat construction and is a major repair contractor for commercial and Navy ships.
