WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King today announced that Cianbro Corp. of Pittsfield has been awarded a $28,860,243 contract from the U.S. Navy to perform structural repairs at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY) in Kittery.
“Portsmouth Naval Shipyard plays a critical role in the defense of our country, and it’s important that the shipyard has the tools and infrastructure needed to continue in that mission,” said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement. “We applaud Cianbro for securing this competitive contract from the Navy and expect that their work on repairs will provide valuable support to the daily operations at PNSY.”
This competitively-awarded contract will support repairs and modernization of pile supported open wharf structures at PSNY’s Berth 11. The project aims to restore the load carrying capacity of the crane rail system on the shipyard’s waterfront, while providing corrosion protection to the wharf. The work is expected to be completed by March 2019.
Cianbro is a construction and construction services company based in Pittsfield.
Senator Collins is a senior member of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, and Senator King is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
