VT Halter Secures Navy Contract

Wednesday, November 22, 2006
VT Halter Marine announced a contract modification worth $165m by the US Navy for the Egyptian Navy’s Fast Missile Craft (FMC) project. This modification enables VT Halter Marine, as the prime contractor, to procure long lead time materials which include items, equipment and or components that need to be developed in advance of the required delivery dates due to their complex nature. VT Halter Marine secured the Phase I functional design contract for $28.8m on 30 November 2005. This contract modification was issued as a letter contract with a not-to-exceed price of $165m, which brings the total amount awarded on this program to approximately $194m. The program value could grow to more than $450m after Phase II is added to the contract. The Fast Missile Craft is designed to perform coastal patrol, surveillance, interdiction, surface strike, and naval battle group support for the 21st century. These vessels will allow the Republic of Egypt to maintain the security of its coastal regions for both itself and friendly countries, while denying access to the areas by any future adversaries. The vessels will be approximately 62 meters in length and will incorporate ship signature control technology. High speed and maneuverability are two of the ship’s primary assets to fulfill these roles. The vessels will also incorporate numerous combat system assets and electronic sensors that give them capabilities in anti-aircraft, anti-surface, and electronic warfare.
