Southwest Marine Gets $7.6M Contract

Friday, August 08, 2003
United Defense Industries has been awarded a $7.6 million cost-plus-award-fee contract by NAVSEA Washington, D.C., to its Southwest Marine (SWM) shipyard here for the post shakedown availability on USS Mustin (DDG 89). In addition to the Mustin, the contract includes options for DDG 91 and three other yet to be determined DDGs, the Navy's newest Arleigh Burke-class (DDG 51) destroyers, home ported in San Diego. If the Navy exercises all options, the total contract would reach $37,708,983. The contract is a follow-on to SWM's current five-year, five-ship contract awarded in 1999. With options, the last of the five ships in the series for this contract is scheduled to complete in December of 2008. Work on the Mustin will begin in January of 2004 and be completed in March 2004. Specific work items include engineering and management support, labor and materials for tests and post report sea trials, emergent work, operational propulsion plant examination, final contract trials, non-standard equipment and technical manuals.
