Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King announced that the U.S. Navy awarded Bath Iron Works a $44,305,474 option last month on a previously awarded contract. The funding will be used to continue Integrated Planning Yard services for Arleigh Burke-class and Oliver Hazard Perry-class ships.
“This announcement is welcome news for the hardworking men and women at Bath Iron Works,” said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement. “These contracts show the Navy’s commitment to BIW and its confidence in the shipyard’s highly skilled employees, who are vital to our state’s economy and to our nation’s security.”
This funding is a cost-plus-award-fee modification to a previously awarded contract for the continuation of Integrated Planning Yard services. The modification covers integrated planning and support for the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers and Oliver Hazard Perry-class of frigates built at Bath, and tasks include design, planning, and modernization efforts.
Senator Collins is a member of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, and Senator King is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
