After receiving four U.S. Navy ship maintenance contracts in May this year, BAE Systems has now been awarded a $53.43 million contract for work on the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Russel (DDG-59).

Under the contract, the company will perform selected restricted availability (SRA) on the Flight I Arleigh Burke-class destroyer.

An SRA includes the planning and execution of depot-level maintenance, alterations, and modifications that will update and improve the ship’s military and technical capabilities.

Works will be carried out in San Diego, California, and are expected to be completed by February 2017.

Built by Ingalls Shipbuilding, USS Russell was launched October 20, 1993 and commissioned May 1995. The ship is homeported in San Diego, California.
