Engineers, Inc. of Oakland, Calif., has been awarded a contract to provide industrial engineering services for the East Coast Tri- dent Refit Facility under devel- opment 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, industrial support areas, personnel support areas, family housing, and recreation facilities.
Kaiser Engineer's contract with the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Com- mand calls for engineering and technical studies to determine the industrial requirements for
Trident submarine waterfront and industrial facilities, for com- ponent maintenance, and for re- lated material support. Kaiser
Engineers will also review facil- ity designs and specifications now being prepared by the Naval Fa- cilities Engineering Command.
The Trident is the third gen- eration of U.S. nuclear subma- rines, following the earlier Po- laris and Poseidon classes. The first of the Trident submarines, the Ohio, was commissioned re- cently. The Navy has one Tri- dent refit facility in operation at
Bangor, Wash, where Kaiser has been providing similar services since 1974.
