General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) subsidiary Bath Iron Works won a $105.4 million modification from the Navy on a deal for procurement of long-lead-time material and engineering, production and support services associated with the construction of DDG 1001, and for long-lead-time material procurement associated with DDG 1002.
According to the firm, “the original contract was awarded in February 2008. Work encompassed by this modification is expected to be completed by February 2011.”
“We see this award as yet another expression of the Navy’s confidence in our ability to efficiently construct and deliver all three ships of the Zumwalt class, ” said Jeff Geiger, president of Bath Iron Works. “We’re making good progress building the lead ship, DDG 1000, building momentum as we ramp up our construction efforts. This award will allow us to maintain progress on our DDG 1001 start-up and initiate timely procurement of key long-lead material items to support the DDG 1002 construction schedule.”
