Electric Boat awarded contracts


GROTON — Electric Boat has been awarded a $152.4 million contract modification by the Navy to provide lead-yard services for Virginia-class attack submarines.

Under the contract, EB will maintain and update design drawings and data, including technology insertions, for each Virginia-class submarine throughout its construction and post-shakedown availability periods. With the exercise of this option, the cumulative value of the contract at its completion in 2014 will be $921.4 million.

Additionally, last week Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-2) announced a $25.7 million contract for EB to perform maintenance and modernization upgrades to the USS Providence, a Los Angeles-class attack sub. The contract will fund a dry-docking continuous maintenance availability at the shipyard, with an estimated 300 employees performing work on the boat. Originally scheduled to be conducted at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the project was shifted to Groton as a result of impacts caused by the fire on the USS Miami.

“Projects like the USS Providence maintenance availability are crucial to keeping EB’s workforce on-the-job and ensuring that our industrial base can continue to sustain the skills needed to support our submarine force,” Courtney said.
