GROTON, Conn., Dec. 19 (UPI) -- General Dynamics Electric Boat was contracted to support the U.S. Navy's new USS North Carolina submarine during its post-shakedown availability.

The USS North Carolina (SSN-777), a Virginia-class ship officially commissioned in May 2008, was constructed by a Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding General Dynamics Electric Boat team.

The Navy awarded General Dynamics $46.5 million to perform work on USS North Carolina during its post-shakedown availability including "maintenance, repairs, alterations, testing and other activities," the release said.

Officials say the maintenance work on the USS North Carolina is expected to be completed in March 2010.
