BAE Picks Up $365 Million Deal to Modernize Destroyers

BAE Systems signed a contract to modernize 11 Arleigh Burke (DDG 51) class guided missile destroyers.  The deal is worth a reported $365 million.

According to the firm, “this work, along with the recent acquisition of Atlantic Marine, reflects BAE Systems’ efforts to support new-era requirements of customers for the readiness and sustainment of equipment and systems.”

“This contract, coupled with those for CG 47-class and amphibious ships in Norfolk, San Diego, and Hawaii, reinforces BAE Systems’ robust, trusted partnership with the Navy, ” said Bill Clifford, president of BAE Systems’ Ship Repair business. “We already will be well into the DDG modernization process on the USS John Paul Jones (DDG 53) in San Diego when the USS Arleigh Burke comes into Norfolk for the same work. This will allow us to leverage our experience in San Diego to provide an enhanced final product to the Navy.”
