The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) subsidiary Bath Iron Works a $679, 600, 348 fixed-price-incentive contract to construct the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer DDG 115.

The Arleigh Burke class is the Navy’s first class of destroyer built around the Aegis combat system and the SPY-1D multi-function phased array radar.

The contract includes options for DDG 116 construction, valued at $665, 016, 688.

Work is expected to be completed by August 2017. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.

“This award is a welcome addition to our backlog and is a positive sign that we will be building DDG 51s in Bath well into the future, ” said Bath Iron Works President Jeff Geiger. “Along with the award of DDG 1001 and 1002 last week, it is another expression of the Navy’s confidence in our ability to build affordable, high quality ships. It also enables us to maintain a strong base of quality shipbuilding jobs in Maine.”
