Todd-Seattle A w a r d ed $ 6 - M i l l i o n N a v y Contract For Work On Support Ship

John T. Gilbride Jr., vice president and general manager of Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation's Seattle Division, has announced the award of a $6-million Navy phased maintenance contract for routine maintenance work without drydocking on the fast combat support ship USS Camden (AOE-2). This contract is the first of five for phased maintenance work on the Camden and sister ship USS Sacramento (AOE-1) expected to be awarded during the next five years. Bidding on the first contract was restricted to Puget Sound shipyards; the Camden is based at Bremerton, Wash.

Todd-Seattle industrial and public relations manager Steve Stanford said this maintenance contract will provide 400 jobs during the four-month period the ship is in the yard, with 25 to 30 support personnel continuing between overhaul contracts.

The Seattle yard's current backlog includes a $236-million Coast Guard contract for modernization of eight Hamilton Class cutters, and a $15-million Navy contract for the regular overhaul of the destroyer USS Harry W. Hill (DD-986).

Todd-Seattle is one of two finalists in competition for follow-on construction of the Navy's air cushion landing craft (LCAC).
