Small business qualifier Puget Sound & Pacific Railroad Co. in Elma, WA received a $12.6 million modification under a previously awarded firm-fixed price contract (N44255-01-C-1002, #P00022) for railroad repairs at Navy Region Northwest, West Sound area. The railroad will be responsible for all elements of those repairs, which raises the current total contract value to $16.3 million. Work will be performed on the Bangor-Shelton-Bremerton Navy Railroad, and is expected to be complete by Septeber 2009. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Northwest, in Silverdale, WA manages the contract. These facilities are linked to Naval Base Kitsap in Washington State. Kitsap is the largest naval organization in Navy Region Northwest, comprising facilities in Bremerton, Bangor and Keyport. Kitsap NB is primarily a submarine base, hosting many SSN Los Angeles Class attack subs and SSBN Trident missile subs, plus the USA’s 3 ultra-advanced SSN-21 Seawolf Class submarines and the Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier CVN 74 USS John C. Stennis.
