BAE Systems has received a multi-ship, multi-option (MSMO) contract from the U.S. Navy to repair, maintain, and modernize nine destroyers and cruisers, either homeported in or visiting Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The five-year contract, awarded by the Naval Sea Systems Command, includes modernization, maintenance, and repair work for the USS Chafee, USS John Paul Jones, USS Chung-Hoon, USS Hopper, USS Michael Murphy, USS O’Kane, USS Halsey, USS Milius and USS Preble. This award marks a continuation of work BAE Systems has been performing on the same type of ships in Hawaii under a previous seven-year contract.

“Our sustained, outstanding performance on the first MSMO award paved the way for this follow-on contract,” said Bill Clifford, president of Ship Repair at BAE Systems. “The Navy clearly recognizes our achievements and success in maintaining and modernizing these ships to ensure the readiness of the fleet. This award speaks volumes about the dedication and commitment of our highly skilled workforce, as well as our island suppliers and small businesses.”

The new contract, coupled with similar MSMO contracts in Norfolk, Virginia; Mayport, Florida; and San Diego, California, reinforces the company’s trusted partnership with the Navy. BAE Systems has successfully completed more than 300 cruiser and destroyer availabilities over the last 20 years.

BAE Systems is a provider of ship repair, maintenance, modernization, conversion, overhaul and ship construction for the U.S. Navy, government, commercial, and private customers. The company operates seven full-service shipyards in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and Hawaii, and offers a highly skilled and experienced workforce of more than 5,000 employees, dry docks, and significant pier space and ship support services. The company also has robust and state-of-the-art commercial shipbuilding and module fabrication capabilities at its Mobile and Jacksonville shipyards.

BAE Systems’ commercial customer base includes industry leaders operating offshore energy support vessels, oil exploration vessels, cargo ships, cruise ships, oil transportation vessels, and international carriers.
