Icebreaker maintenance contract for Todd Pacific
Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation says it has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Coast Guard to provide long-term maintenance of Polar Class icebreakers.
The contract consists of multiple contract options for planned maintenance availabilities (PMA's) and docking planned maintenance availabilities (DPMA's) for the POLAR STAR (WAGB-10) and POLAR SEA (WAGB-11). The availabilities, and their companion planning options, extend through the last DPMA ending August 5, 2008, and the last PMA ending on September 2, 2008. The work to be performed includes availability planning and generalized ship maintenance and repairs as needed, with emphasis on propulsion and deck machinery work.
Todd Pacific expects to team with the Coast Guard to identify the appropriate best value work scope and technical solutions for support of the two icebreakers. Todd Pacific will be supported in this effort by various regional suppliers and subcontractors. Significant support will be provided by Todd Pacific's two teaming partners for this contract, Pacific Ship Repair and Fabrication ("PacShip") and AMSEC LLC ("AMSEC").
The total value of all options, if exercised by the Coast Guard, is approximately $50 million.
