Todd Shipyards to Overhaul CVN-72

Tuesday, August 15, 2006
Todd Shipyards Corporation said that the U.S. Navy has awarded to its wholly owned subsidiary, Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation, a $10,949,272 modification to previously awarded contract N00024-00-C-4152. This modification represents the exercise of an option for the Docking Planned Incremental Availability ("DPIA") for USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN- 72), at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard commencing on September 5, 2006 and is expected to be completed March 15, 2007. Todd Pacific's workforce will perform pier side maintenance, repairs and alterations of various ships systems and equipment throughout the Lincoln. The DPIA of the Lincoln is being performed pursuant to the company's five-year Planned Incremental Availability ("PIA") contract with the Navy for the overhaul and continued maintenance of the aircraft carriers stationed at Bremerton and Everett, Wash. The cost-type DPIA contract was originally awarded to Todd Pacific in 1999 for five years and was awarded again in 2004 for an additional five years. Todd Pacific performs a substantial amount of repair and maintenance work on commercial and federal government vessels engaged in various seagoing trade activities in the Pacific Northwest and provides new construction and industrial fabrication services for a wide variety of customers. Its customers include the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard, NOAA, the Washington State Ferry system, the Alaska Marine Highway System, and various other commercial and governmental customers. Todd has operated a shipyard in Seattle since 1916.
