Electric Boat gets $10.4 million contract modification

The US Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, a $10.4 million contract modification for nuclear-submarine work.

Under the terms of the award, Electric Boat will provide design, engineering, material and logistics support for the Trident program, two operational Seawolf-class submarines and efforts supporting Los Angeles-class ships.

Electric Boat will also provide planning, scheduling and technical support for submarine maintenance activities.

The contract being modified was initially awarded in May 1999 and could be worth more than $742 million over five years if all options are exercised and funded.

Work performed under the modification is expected to be completed by March 2004.
