Huntington Ingalls Industries’ AMSEC subsidiary has been awarded a contract to provide engineering, technical, repair and logistics support to the U.S. Navy’s Carrier Engineering Maintenance Assist Team (CEMAT) and Surface Ship Engineering Maintenance Assist Team (SEMAT) programs.
The contract contains a one-year base period with four one-year option periods, which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to more than $187 million.
AMSEC will furnish engineering and technical services in support of maintenance and planning for the overhaul and repair of equipment and systems associated with the Navy’s aircraft carriers and West Coast surface ships.
“We are very pleased to continue our CEMAT support to the Navy’s aircraft carriers and SEMAT support to its west coast surface ships,” said Brad Mason, director of AMSEC’s maintenance, modernization and technical services operation. “Our technicians are part of the valuable ‘find-fix-and-train’ philosophy the program has provided for almost 30 years. As the Navy faces both budget and size restrictions, AMSEC is proud to be part of this maintenance philosophy while providing valuable training to the sailors who operate the critical systems covered by this contract.”
Work will be performed in various ship homeports throughout the world. If all options are awarded, the work is expected to be completed by April 2019.
