Bechtel’s plant machinery division has won a potential $605 million contract to continue to provide nuclear propulsion components for the U.S. Navy.
The Naval Sea Systems Command awarded the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract under the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, the Defense Department said Friday.
That initiative by the National Nuclear Security Administration aims to research, design, construct, maintain and operate the service branch’s nuclear-powered vessels and other facilities that work in support of the Navy’s nuclear-based fleet.
Bechtel will perform work in Pennsylvania and New York, according to DoD.
NAVSEA will obligate the full contract amount from the service branch’s fiscal 2016 shipbuilding and conversion funds at the time of award.
