Pacific and Southwest - A Coastal Shipyard Alliance

Tuesday, April 23, 2002
Pacific Shipyards Intl. has joined forces with Southwest Marine to carry out a five-year IDIQ contract for the U.S. Navy. The primary function of the contract, which was awarded by Naval Sea Systems Command is to accomplish Depot-Level maintenance and repair work at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard on surface ships homeported in Pearl Harbor. The availabilities include drydocking and pier side work.

Pacific Shipyards, which is comprised of Honolulu Shipyard (HIS) and Honolulu Marine, formed an alliance called TEAM Hawaii to meld the resources and strengths of both companies in order to better serve the U.S. Navy. HSIwill serve as the primary contractor on the IDIQ contract and is providing local production workers from the community. SWM will work to provide program management and administrative support, as well as the purchasing of material and supply chain management. SWM will also supply access to its preferred suppliers to provide cost-effective services under the IDIQ contract.

The two yards first teamed up in September 2001 when they submitted a joint bid to the Navy and were subsequently awarded the contract for EDRSA work on USS Chosin. The work, which is currently being performed at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, began on November 7, 2001 and is scheduled for completion on June 20, 2002. In addition to USS Chosin, TEAM Hawaii, under the IDIQ contract, is working on USS O'Kane and USS Russell, beginning June 12.
