Todd Shipyards Contract for USCGC Polar Star

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Todd Shipyards Corp. announced that the U.S. Coast Guard has awarded to its subsidiary, Todd Pacific Shipyards Corp., a $16,008,228 modification to previously awarded contract HSCG85-09-C-6BX667 in support of USCGC Polar Star's (WAGB-10) reactivation since being in "Caretaker Status" nearly four years.

According to a release, repairs and alterations performed during the planned dry-docking availability of the icebreaker are in the third phase of the cutter's overhaul. The contract modification provides for the alteration and repair of ship's systems, engines and shipboard equipment. The work will be accomplished at Todd Pacific's Seattle shipyard beginning immediately, and is expected to be complete in July 2011.

The planned dry-docking availability for USCGC Polar Star is being performed pursuant to Todd Pacific's five-year Multi-Ship Multi-Option ("MSMO") contract with the Coast Guard for the overhaul and continued maintenance of the two Polar Class Icebreakers stationed at Seattle, Washington. The cost-type contract was awarded to Todd Pacific in February 2009.
