BAE Systems to Modernise USS VICKSBURG

Work Will Complete in September 2017

BAE Systems has been awarded a contract values at $42.9 million ($45.9 million if all options are exercised) for modernisation of the USS VICKSBURG, a TICONDEROGA-class guided missile cruiser.

Work under the special selected restricted availability (SSRA) contract, which was competitively awarded will include replacement of critical aluminium structures as well as system alterations and upgrades at BAE Systems’ Norfolk shipyard. Commencing in April, work is scheduled to be completed by September.

The VICKSBURG is our second SSRA under the long-term cruiser mod programme,” Dave Thomas, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair, said. “Our team recently completed similar work onboard the GETTYSBURG, which is now ready for the next phase of modernization next year and continued service in the fleet afterwards. This SSRA contract provides important work for our shipyard team, particularly for our skilled employees and their work with aluminum structures aboard navy ships.”
