Wednesday, October 19, 2011

General Dynamics NASSCO, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), won a $37m contract by the U.S. Navy for the fitting-out availability of the San Antonio-class amphibious assault dock ship USS San Diego (LPD 22).  Work under this contract will be performed at NASSCO beginning in May 2012 and is expected to be completed by December 2014. Specific efforts for the USS San Diego under this contract include program management, planning, engineering, design, liaison, scheduling, labor and procurement of incidental material.  On board repair efforts will include piping, structural and machinery work.   The contract award also includes options which, if exercised, would bring the total value of this contract to approximately $134m. Built in Pascagoula, Miss., the 684-foot long ship completed builder’s sea trials off the Gulf Coast on October 1, 2011.  The tests assessed the ship’s defensive, communications, propulsion and other auxiliary systems.  The USS San Diego is designed to deliver a Marine battalion of 699 officers and enlisted men fully equipped for a variety of expeditionary warfare missions.  USS San Diego is the fourth Navy ship to share that name.
