Todd Shipyards Corporation said
that the U.S. Navy has awarded to its wholly owned subsidiary, Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation
, a $10,949,272 modification to previously awarded contract N00024-00-C-4152. This modification represents the exercise of an option for the Docking Planned Incremental Availability ("DPIA") for USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN- 72), at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard commencing on September 5, 2006 and is expected to be completed March 15, 2007.
