Austal‘s ship manufacturing business in Mobile, Alabama will design and build a medium auxiliary floating dry dock for the U.S. Navy under a potential $128.1 million firm-fixed-price contract.
Naval Sea Systems Command received two offers for the project via a competitive procurement on SAM.gov, the Department of Defense said Friday.
The firm-fixed-price contract includes $98,620 in options for the shipbuilder to conduct special studies and provide spares to the service branch.
Austal USA said Monday it will construct Auxiliary Floating Dry Dock Medium in a modern steel panel line at the company’s facility in Alabama.
The 694-foot AFDM craft will have a lift capacity of 18,000 long tons and a clear deck working area of 90,800 square feet, the company noted.
