A Dragados-Hawaiian Dredging-Orion joint venture has won a potential $2.8 billion task order from the U.S. Navy to build a concrete dry dock at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii.
The Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Pacific is the contracting activity and received four proposals for project, as part of a contract awarded in November 2021, the Department of Defense said Friday.
In 2021, NAVFAC Pacific awarded five companies spots on the potential $8 billion multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in support of the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program, which seeks to integrate industrial plant equipment and other infrastructure investments at the service branch’s four public shipyards to meet requirements for nuclear fleet maintenance.
The Navy said the planned project will replace Dry Dock 3 with a new graving dock, dubbed Dry Dock 5, meant to help the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard improve its capability to maintain and modernize the U.S. Pacific Fleet’s nuclear-powered submarines.
The command expects work to occur in Hawaii through September 2027 and is obligating $463 million in fiscal 2023 military construction funds.
According to DOD, the task order contains three options that could bring the award’s total value to $3.4 billion if exercised.
