SEATTLE, April 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has modified a contract with Todd Shipyards Corp. for maintenance and repair work on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 aircraft carrier.
Todd Shipyards said its Todd Pacific Shipyards subsidiary was awarded the contact from the Navy. Under the approximately $15.5 million modification, Todd Pacific will perform maintenance work on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN-72, a Nimitz-class super carrier, at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Washington state.
According to a news release, the exercised contract option, part of an initiative by the Navy to overhaul the Nimitz-class ships, will include "pier-side maintenance, repairs and alterations."
Officials said the maintenance work on the Abraham Lincoln is expected to be completed before December.
