Kaiser Engineers Awarded Service Contract For Trident Sub Facilities

R a y m o n d International Inc., Houston, Texas, announced recently that its subsidiary, Kaiser Engineers, Inc. of Oakland, Calif., has been awarded a contract to provide i n d u s t r i a l engineering services for the East Coast Trident Refit Facility under development by the U.S. Navy.

The facility, with an estimated construction value in excess of $300 million, is part of a Trident refit complex to be located at the Naval Submarine Base at Kings Bay, Ga., according to Henry F.

LeMieux, Raymond's chairman and chief executive officer. The complex will include waterfront facilities, i n d u s t r i a l support areas, personnel support areas, family housing, and recreation facilities.

Kaiser Engineer's contract with the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command calls for engineering and technical studies to determine the industrial requirements for Trident submarine w a t e r f r o nt and industrial facilities, for component maintenance, and for related material support. Kaiser Engineers will also review facility designs and specifications now being prepared by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command.

The Trident is the third generation of U.S. nuclear submarines, following the earlier Polaris and Poseidon classes. The first of the Trident submarines, the Ohio, was commissioned recently.

The Navy has one Trident refit facility in operation at Bangor, Wash, where Kaiser has been providing similar services since 1974.
