AMSEA $27M Sealift Command Contract

Monday, January 18, 2010

General Dynamics American Overseas Marine (AMSEA) has been awarded a $27.2m operations and maintenance services contract by the U.S. Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC). Through this contract, General Dynamics will provide full-service operations and maintenance for seven Navy Large, Medium-Speed, Roll-On/Roll-Off (LMSR) vessels. Services will include crewing, engineering, maintenance, procurement and provisioning.

"AMSEA has successfully operated the vessels in this program for the last five years and looks forward to continuing our superior service for our customer under this new contract," said Captain Thomas Merrell, president of General Dynamics, American Overseas Marine.

MSC's LMSR program significantly enhances the U.S. sealift capability for the new millennium. LMSRs have been the primary movers of U.S. military equipment during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Each LMSR can carry an entire U.S. Army Task Force, including 58 tanks and 48 other tracked vehicles, as well as more than 900 trucks and other wheeled vehicles. The LMSRs are each crewed by approximately 30 civilian mariners.
