A General Dynamics subsidiary will continue its engineering, planning and technical support services for the U.S. Navy’s nuclear submarines under a new $321.7 million contract modification.
The Defense Department said Wednesday General Dynamics Electric Boat will carry out configuration management, on-site support, submersible systems modernization, research and development, temporary alteration assistance, mechanical, hull and electrical engineering and training support work.
The Navy awarded the modification to exercise an option under a potential five-year, $1.5 billion contract originally awarded to Electric Boat in 2014.
Work covered under the modification includes logistics technical information, drawings, maintenance, propulsion plant engineering and safety design evaluation for submarines and other submersibles.
Electric Boat will perform work in Connecticut, Washington, Virginia, Rhode Island, Georgia and Hawaii through September 2017.
