BAE Systems Ship Repair has been awarded a multi-ship, multi-option (MSMO) dry dock contract by the U.S. Navy to maintain six Ticonderoga class (CG 47) guided missile cruisers, either home-ported in or visiting the Norfolk, Virginia area.

Included in the five-year contract is the execution planning, modernization, maintenance and repair work for the USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55), USS San Jacinto (CG 56), USS Normandy (CG 60), USS Monterey (CG 61), USS Anzio (CG 68) and USS Vella Gulf (CG 72).

 

“The award of this contract is a direct testament to the sustained superior performance and dedicated commitment of our highly skilled workforce”

“The award of this contract is a direct testament to the sustained superior performance and dedicated commitment of our highly skilled workforce,” said Bill Clifford, president of BAE Systems Ship Repair. “The Navy clearly recognizes our achievements and success in maintaining and modernizing these critical assets for combat operations.”


The contract – coupled with those for DDG 51 class, LPD 17 class and amphibious ships in Norfolk, San Diego, Hawaii and Jacksonville – reinforces BAE Systems’ trusted MSMO support for the U.S. Navy.
