Virginia Class Cutaway(click to view lg.) Electric Boat Corp. in Groton, CT has received a $15.5 million modification to previously awarded contract (N00024-96-C-2100) for execution of the USS Virginia’s (SSN 774) Post Shakedown Availability to accomplish maintenance, repair, alterations, testing, and other work. Note that work of this type is routine with all new ships post-shakedown, and that first-in-class ships always represent additional work. The first-of-class USS Virginia is currently undergoing operational evaluation (OpEval), and is currently scheduled to be inducted into service in 2007-2008. Work will be performed in Groton, CT (99%) and Quonset Point, RI (1%), and is expected to be complete in November 2006. The Supervisor of Shipbuilding Conversion and Repair, USN in Groton, CT issued the contract. See also ASDS’ replacements.
