General Dynamics NASSCO Wins $60M Navy Contract for 3rd Mobile Landing Platform Ship

The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics NASSCO (NYSE: GD), San Diego, Calif., a $60 million modification to a previously-awarded contract to provide long lead time material for Mobile Landing Platform Ship 3. NASSCO is currently under contract to build two MLP ships.

General Dynamics will provide long lead time material for main diesel generator engine components, integrated propulsion components, steel, emergency generator, propeller, pumps and other components to support construction of MLP 3.

A contract that fully funds construction of the MLP ship is expected to be awarded by early next year.

“With the first MLP ship now under construction, we are pleased to be selected to build another MLP” said Frederick J. Harris, president of General Dynamics NASSCO. “This contract demonstrates the U.S. Navy’s confidence in our ability to build and deliver a high-quality ship on schedule.”

Work is expected to be complete by December 2014.  Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.  The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
