BAE Systems Hawaii Shipyards Inc. was awarded a contract modification for scheduled Extended Docking Selected Restricted Availability (EDSRA) on U.S. Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, USS Hopper (DDG-70).
The cost-plus-award-fee, cost-plus-incentive-fee contract modification, worth around $50.6 million, was awarded by the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY & IMF). Fiscal 2019 operations and maintenance (Navy); and fiscal 2018 other procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of around $25 million will be obligated at time of award.
The scheduled EDSRA is the opportunity in the ship’s life cycle primarily to conduct repair and alteration to systems that will update and improve the ship’s military and technical capabilities. This repair modification will include repair and alteration requirements. A focal point of the work is to support alteration installation team modernization packages. Work will be performed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and is expected to be completed by July 2020.
