BAE Systems Hawaii Shipyards was awarded a cost-plus-award-fee, cost-plus-incentive-fee modification to a previously awarded contract for scheduled selected repair availability (SRA) on USS Chafee (DDG 90), an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer of the U.S. Navy.
The modification, worth around $22.7 million, was awarded by the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance (Navy) funding for the amount will be obligated at time of award and will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
The scheduled SRA is an opportunity in the ship’s life cycle primarily to conduct repairs and alterations to systems that will update and improve the ship’s military and technical capabilities. A focal point of the work is to perform main engine intake and uptake compartment structural repairs and topside preservation.
Work will be performed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and is expected to be completed by September 2018.
