The awards include provisions for additional work, which if exercised, would bring the total value of the contracts to approximately $64 million. Work will be performed both in Virginia Beach, Va., and Camp Pendleton, Calif., and is expected to be completed by February 2014.
The LCAC SLEP scope of work includes repair and upgrade of the buoyancy box, gas turbine engine replacement, installation of a new skirt and an integrated C4N equipment package, as well as select craft alterations and repair work.
