MLL Wins U.S. Navy Prepositioning Operation And Maintenance Contract

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

NORFOLK, Va., April 8, 2011 – Maersk Line, Limited (MLL) has been awarded a contract for the operation and maintenance of two ships in the U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command’s (MSC) Maritime Prepositioning Force, the USNS WHEAT and the USNS STOCKHAM. MLL will provide personnel and mariners, operational and technical support ashore and afloat, as well as all the equipment, tools, provisions and supplies necessary to operate these vessels worldwide. MLL also will support MSC in the management of government-owned cargo, including, but not limited to, hazardous materials, vehicular, bulk, and general cargoes.

“MLL’s support of Maritime Prepositioning Ships goes back to 1983 when we converted five commercial vessels and operated them for 25 years. We’re pleased that MSC has recognized the value of our service and has entrusted us with these ships,” said Scott Cimring, MLL’s Senior Director of Government Ship Management. “Our approach to ship management leverages our global network, proven management practices, and a mindset of continuous improvement. Cost-effective readiness is a MLL hallmark, and we’re ready and excited by the opportunity to continue serving the nation.”

If all options are exercised, the contract periods for the USNS WHEAT and the USNS STOCKHAM will extend into 2015. The approximate contract value, including all option years but excluding reimbursable expenses, is expected to be $66 million.

Our vessel experience includes container ships, tankers, roll-on/rolloff ships, large government supply ships, and various special mission vessels. MLL applies its engineering expertise to improve the lifecycle strategies of marine assets and provide innovative designs for new and repurposed vessels. Our record of success has made MLL the largest U.S. shipping company engaged in international trade and a major charterer and contract operator for the U.S. government.
