Maersk Subsidiary to Operate, Maintain Navy Sealift Vessels Under Potential $196M Contract

A Maersk Line subsidiary has received a potential five-year, $196.3 million contract from to help the U.S. Navy operate and maintain seven USNS Bob Hope-class military vehicle cargo ships.

U.S. Marine Management Inc. will support the military branch’s surge large, medium-speed roll-on/roll-off vessels at sea globally under the firm-fixed-price contract, the Defense Department said Monday.

DoD noted the contract has a 12-month base period that is valued at $36.1 million and will run through September 2018.

The Military Sealift Command is the contracting activity and will obligate $27 million in working capital funds for fiscal 2018.

Work could extend until March 2023 if the Navy exercises the contract’s 12-month options and an additional six-month option, DoD added.

Norfolk, Virginia-based USMMI provides ship operations, maintenance, conversion, modification and retrofit services to U.S. naval vessels.
