U.S. Department of Defense announces the award of a Navy US$10,354,523 contract to BAE Systems San Francisco Ship Repair, San Francisco, California, for work on the USNS  Wally Schirra (T-AKE 8).

The firm-fixed-price contract is for a 58-calendar day regular overhaul and dry docking availability of USNS Wally Schirra.

Work will include inspection of the propeller shaft and stern tube, bow thruster repairs, installation of the cloropac unit, upgrades to the electronic chart display and information system radar, underwater hull cleaning and painting, modification to the anchor windlass foundation and removal, repair and re-installation of hazardous material containers.

Schirra's primary mission is to operate as part of a carrier strike group providing fuel, ammunition and dry and refrigerated stores to U.S. Navy ships at sea, enabling them to remain underway for extended periods. This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $13,096,898.

Work will be performed in San Francisco, California, and is expected to be completed by October 2014.
