Within a week's time, Detyens Shipyards has secured two Military Sealift Command (MSC) ship repair contracts worth more than $29 million combined. 

The privately-owned Charleston, S.C. repair yard beat out two other competing shipyards to secure a $18,144,376, 76-calendar day, firm-fixed-price contract for the regular overhaul dry-docking availability of the fleet replenishment oiler USNS Leroy Grumman (T-AO 195), the U.S. Department of Defense announced on Tuesday.

The award follows Detyens' $10,884,056 firm-fixed-price contract announced by the Pentagon last Thursday for a 75-calendar day shipyard availability for services for the post shakedown availability and dry-docking of the expeditionary fast transport USNS Puerto Rico (T-EPF 11). Detyens was one of two bidders for the project.

Work on USNS Leroy Grumman is expected to begin January 20 and wrap up by April 5, 2021.

The USNS Puerto Rico contract, which contains nine options that could raise the cumulative contract value to $13,039,037, is expected to be completed by April 2021.

Earlier this year, Detyens performed the regular overhaul and dry-docking of MSC vessels USNS Arctic (T-AOE 8) and USNS Patuxent (T-AO 201).
