LHA-4 into NYC, 2008(click to view full) BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair in Norfolk, VA received a $16 million modification to a previously awarded contract for the USS Nassau’s [LHA-4] FY 2009 planned maintenance availability. This is a minor maintenance period, involving 30+ work items to repair, replace, preserve, install, or clean parts of the ship and its systems. In addition, the contractor will perform support services for several alteration installation teams, and for Norfolk Naval Shipyard work. USS Nassau is named for the Battle of Nassau in 1776 – the US Navy and Marine Corps’ first-ever amphibious landing. This Tarawa Class amphibious assault ship was commissioned in 1979. She spent time in 2008 deployed to the Mediterranean Sea and Persian Gulf, visited NYC, NY on Columbus Day to be part of the celebration for the 100th anniversary of the Great White Fleet, and was recently used to coordinate relief efforts around Galveston, TX after a hurricane. Work will be performed in Norfolk, VA and is expected to be complete by February 2009. $15.9 million in contract funds will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center in Norfolk, VA issued the contract (N00024-05-C-4403).
