The U.S. Navy awarded Cianbro Corp. a $26.9 million contract in December for construction and dock repairs at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY) in Kittery, Maine.

Under the contract, Cianbro will replace the caisson at PSNY’s dry dock number #3. The work will also provide repairs to the concrete entrance structures of the dry dock, and is expected to be completed by May 2019.

“The work done at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard has a direct impact on our national security, and this contract for Cianbro will help make sure that the shipyard is well-equipped to continue in its important mission,” said Senators Susan Collins and Angus King in a joint statement. “We commend the Navy for investing in PNSY, our national defense, and the Maine economy. And as always, we applaud the men and women at the shipyard for their hard work and dedication.”

The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard deals mainly with the overhaul, repair and modernization of the U.S. Navy’s Los Angeles-class submarines.
