Golden, Pingree Announce Over $146 Million Contract Modification for BIW

Washington, November 18, 2020 Representatives Jared Golden (ME-02) and Chellie Pingree (ME-01) announced today that the Navy has awarded a $146,118,867 contract modification to Bath Iron Works (BIW). These additional funds will be used to continue ongoing work maintaining and updating Arleigh Burke-class (DDG 51) destroyers. “The DDG 51 destroyer is the trusted workhorse of America’s Navy, and Bath builds them best,” said Golden and Pingree. “The Navy’s announcement is welcome news and will help to protect Maine jobs, keep our nation safe, and protect the sailors aboard these destroyers with critical maintenance and modernization updates.” The funds come as a modification to a previously-awarded contract with the U.S. Navy.   ### MIL OSI USA News
