BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair received two contracts collectively worth more than $100 million to cover shipyard work for two U.S. Navy workhorses: a cruiser and a destroyer.
The Navy awarded a $53.6 million deal for depot-level maintenance on the USS Milius, an Arleigh Burke class destroyer. Work is expected to be complete by December 2016. Contract funds of $20.1 million were set to expire at the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.
BAE also received a $50.6 million contract modification to put the USS Cape St. George into dry dock. The Cape St. George is a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser. The Navy has an option which, if exercised, would increase the deal about $400,000 to $51 million. Contract funds of $48.1 million were set to expire at the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.
The Southwest Regional Maintenance Center in San Diego awarded both deals on Sept. 29.
BAE Systems is based in the United Kingdom.
