Bechtel gets $64 million U.S. Navy nuclear contract modification

Bechtel Plant Machinery has been awarded a $64 million U.S. Navy contract modification for naval nuclear propulsion components.

Work will be performed in Pennsylvania and New York.

No completion date or additional information is provided for Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program contracts.

Naval Sea Systems Command is the contracting activity.

The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program falls under the National Nuclear Security Administration and is comprised of military and civilian personnel who design, build, operate, maintain and manage the nuclear-powered ships and the many facilities that support the nuclear fleet.

The program has cradle-to-grave responsibility for all naval nuclear propulsion matters.

Bechtel is a prime contractor for the program and is responsible for providing design, manufacturing and procurement management for the fabrication, testing, delivery, installation and field support of nuclear components for installation in submarines and aircraft carriers.
