General Dynamics Electric Boat has received a USD 36.13 million modification to previously awarded contract, dating back from April, 2013, for a nuclear submarine repair work under the Nuclear Regional Maintenance Department (NRMD).
Electric Boat will provide NRMD tasks in support of operational nuclear submarines at the Naval Submarine Support Facility, Naval Submarine Base, New London, Conn. The contract was awarded in support of returning mission ready submarines to the fleet.

The General Dynamics Electric Boat is the only shipyard, capable of fulfilling the Government’s requirements, which is near to SUBASE, New London.
Work will be performed in New London, Conn., and is expected to be completed by March 2015.
