A joint venture of Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Bell Helicopter has received two contract modifications worth potentially $411.9 million combined to repair various parts of the U.S. Navy‘s V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft.
The Bell Boeing Joint Program Office secured a $246.2 million delivery order modification that contains a one-year base and a one-year option period which, if exercised, will increase the potential ceiling of the previously awarded contract to $545.2 million, the Defense Department said Thursday.
The second modification is valued at $165.7 million and contains a two-year base period.
Bell Boeing JPO will perform work in Fort Worth, Texas and in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania through December 2019.
The Naval Supply Systems Command Weapons Systems Support will obligate a total of $267.5 million from the service branch’s fiscal 2017 working capital funds at the time of award of the modifications.
