HOS Extends Contract for Surface Escort Vessels

Hornbeck Offshore Services (HOS), LLC, Covington, Louisiana, is being issued a $19,7 million modification under a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract to exercise a 180-day option to extend services for the long-term time charter of U.S.-built, U.S.-flagged, contractor-owned and -operated surface escort vessels HOS Black Powder, HOS Westwind, HOS Eagleview, and HOS Arrowhead.

 

These vessels are used to escort U.S. Navy assets transiting into and out of U.S. Navy ports.

Work will be performed on the U.S. East coast (50 percent) and U.S. West coast (50 percent), and is expected to be completed by February 2015.

Navy working capital funds in the amount of $19,754,900 will be obligated in fiscal 2014, and will not expire at the end of the fiscal year.

The U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
