NASSCO Awarded U.S. Navy Contract

Thursday, September 09, 1999
National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO) was awarded a $1.5 million study contract for the first phase of the U.S. Navy's Auxiliary Dry Cargo Carrier T-ADC(X) Program. The T-ADC(X) program, which is a new class of Dry Cargo Carrier auxiliaries for the U.S. Navy's Combat Logistics Force, is intended to replace the Navy's aging Combat Stores Ships and Ammunition Ships that have exhausted their service runs. NASSCO is one of the four competing shipyards to be granted a contract for Phase I of the program. During this phase, each shipyard team will conduct trade-off studies and analyses to design an improved cargo handling system, which will require fewer people to operate and maintain over the life of the system. The contract for Phase II, the Detailed Design and Construction of up to 12 ships will be awarded during 2000.
