BAE To Continue Servicing Cruisers, Destroyers At Pearl Harbor

ARLINGTON, Va., April 28 (UPI) — U.S. Navy destroyers and cruisers, homeported or visiting Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, are to receive maintenance, repair and modernization services from BAE Systems.

The work will be performed under a multi-ship, multi-option contract from the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command that continues services performed by BAE Systems at Pearl Harbor for the past seven years.

“Our sustained, outstanding performance on the first MSMO award paved the way for this follow-on contract,” said Bill Clifford, president of Ship Repair at BAE Systems. “The Navy clearly recognizes our achievements and success in maintaining and modernizing these ships to ensure the readiness of the fleet. This award speaks volumes about the dedication and commitment of our highly skilled workforce, as well as our island suppliers and small businesses.”

A total of nine ships are covered under the five-year award: the USS Chafee, USS John Paul Jones, USS Chung-Hoon, USS Hopper, USS Michael Murphy, USS O’Kane, USS Halsey, USS Milius, and USS Preble.

The value of the contract was not disclosed.

BAE Systems holds similar contracts for ships in Norfolk, Va., Mayport, Fla., and San Diego, Calif.
