Navy Awards NASSCO $14 Million For Overhaul Of Tank Landing Ship

National Steel and Shipbuilding Company of San Diego (NASSCO) has announced that a contract option for approximately $14 million has been exercised by the U.S. Navy for the regular overhaul of the tank landing ship USS Bristol County (LST- 1198).

A contract awarded by the Navy in 1982 provided for the regular overhaul of the tank landing ship USS Tuscaloosa (LST-1187), with options for similar overhauls of four additional LSTs—Cayuga, Frederick, Peoria, and Bristol County. Each option has been exercised separately; with the exercise of all options, the total value of the contract is approximately $80 million.

The Bristol County has arrived at NASSCO and is scheduled for redelivery to the Navy August 23 this year.

All five LSTs were built by the San Diego yard during 1967-72 as part of a 17-ship contract fulfilled for the Navy by NASSCO. The shipyard's current backlog is approximately $710 million, including the Bristol County.
