Northrop Grumman Awarded Nuclear Sub Contract

Wednesday, October 06, 2004
Northrop Grumman Corporation was awarded a contract for the planning and execution of dry-docking work on the nuclear-powered submarine USS Hyman G. Rickover (SSN 709).

The contract is valued at $36.5 million. The work will be performed at the company's Newport News sector in Newport News, Va.

"Newport News is pleased to have the opportunity to continue our support of the submarine fleet," said Irwin F. Edenzon, sector vice president for Technology Development and Fleet Support. "We want to be in the sub maintenance business and each time we work on a major maintenance availability we get better at it. Our objective is to continuously improve our performance on these contracts and grow our fleet-support business."

The Rickover arrived at Newport News on Oct. 1 for approximately five months of maintenance work. Work will include blasting and painting of the submarine's internal and external tanks, removal and overhaul of various system valves, steering and diving gear inspection and repair, repairs to torpedo systems, and inspection and repairs to the sail, pressure and non-pressure hulls. This is the second submarine availability awarded to the Newport News sector in the last two years.
