Pennsylvania-based Bechtel Plant Machinery was the biggest winner of the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Friday digest of military contracts, which announced that the company will be given $605.2 million for the manufacturing of Naval nuclear propulsion components.
None of the funds being assigned at the time the contract is awarded will expire at the end of the 2015 fiscal year. Only Bechtel Plant Machinery was considered for the cost-plus-fixed-fee Navy contract as it was the only company deemed capable of meeting the contract requirements. The majority of the labor (65 percent) will be conducted in Monroeville, Pa., while the remaining work will be performed in Schenectady, N.Y. The completion date for the work wasn’t shared, as is the practice for Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program contracts.

None of the funds being awarded with the contract will expire at the end of the 2015 fiscal year. The labor will be conducted in Orlando, Fla., and should be finished in March 2016.
