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.
